Chesham & Amersham: Conservative hold

Cheryl Gillan has been re-elected as the MP for Chesham & Amersham, with a decreased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Liberal Democrat Dan Gallagher by 16,223 votes, 5,917 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Matt Turmaine of the Labour Party came third and the Green Party's Alan Booth came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.3 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 56,000 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.

All four candidates keep their deposits, after receiving more than 5% of the votes.
