Lindsay Hoyle has been re-elected as the MP for Chorley, with an increased majority.
The Speaker, who stood as a Labour candidate in the 2017 election, beat independent candidate Mark Brexit-Smith by 17,392 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.
James Melling of the Green Party came third.
By convention major parties don’t run in the speaker’s seat.
Voter turnout was down by 21.8 percentage points since the last general election.
Nearly 40,000 people, more than half of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.
