'Leavers' vote Tory in General Election

BBC Radio Derby, political reporter

Not totally surprising but Derbyshire constituencies which voted most strongly to Leave in 2016 tended to see bigger increases in Conservative vote share last week...


Beckett: Conservatives brought trouble on themselves

Gavin Bevis

BBC Local Live

Labour's Margaret Beckett, who retained Derby South with a majority of 11,248, said the Conservatives only had themselves to blame for their current predicament.

Margaret Beckett

"It was the arrogance of the decision and the way the decision was made," she said.

"And then the way the whole campaign was conducted, as if the electorate could be taken for granted."

More Conservative election candidates revealed

BBC News Online

The Conservative Party has announced more candidates for a number of seats across the East Midlands ahead of the general election.

Simon Murray will be the party's Nottingham East candidate, while Jack Tinley will stand in Nottingham North. 

Mr Murray will compete for the seat alongside Labour's Chris Leslie and Barry Holliday from the Liberal Democrats, while Mr Tinley will stand against Tad Jones, also from the Liberal Democrats, and Labour's Alex Norris.

The party's candidate for Bolsover will be Helen Harrison, whose opponents include UKIP's Philip Rose and Labour's Dennis Skinner, who has held the seat since 1970. 

Meanwhile, Spencer Pitfield will stand in the Chesterfield seat currently held by Labour's Toby Perkins, and Evonne Williams will stand in Derby South against the likes of Labour's Margaret Beckett and Joe Naitta from the Liberal Democrats.

Meanwhile, in Derbyshire, UKIP's Philip Rose will be contesting Bolsover, held by Dennis Skinner (pictured) since 1970.

It has also been announced that Labour's Toby Perkins will be defending his Chesterfield seat.

In Derby South, Labour's Margaret Beckett will go up against Liberal Democrat Joe Naitta again, just as she did in 2015

In Derbyshire Dales, Patrick McLoughlin will look to hold the seat for the Conservatives against his 2015 general election opponent, Labour's Andy Botham. 

Maggie Throup is also vying to retain Erewash for the Tories. Labour's Catherine Atkinson will be one candidate contesting the seat. 

In High Peak, Conservative Andrew Bingham hopes to be re-elected while Labour's Ruth George is running against him. In North East Derbyshire, Labour's Natascha Engel will look to keep her seat.

Tory Heather Wheeler and Labour's Robert Pearson have been confirmed as two of the candidates who will fight for the South Derbyshire constituency, while Labour's Sean Sheahan will be just one candidate looking to unseat Conservative Andrew Bridgen in North West Leicestershire.  

We expect many more candidates will announce their intention to run and we will bring the news as we hear it.
