Cheltenham: Conservative hold

Alex Chalk has been re-elected as the MP for Cheltenham, with a decreased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Liberal Democrat Max Wilkinson by 981 votes, less than half the majority at the 2017 election.

George Penny of the Labour Party came third and the Monster Raving Loony Party's George Ridgeon came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 1 percentage point since the last general election.

More than 59,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the four candidates, George Penny (Labour) and George Ridgeon (Monster Raving Loony Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
