Margaret Beckett has been re-elected as the MP for Derby South, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Ed Barker by 6,019 votes, 5,229 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Joe Naitta of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Brexit Party's Timothy Prosser came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 6.7 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 42,000 people, 58.1% 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.
