Dewsbury’s new Conservative MP Mark Eastwood says he's "over the moon" at re-capturing the seat he lost in 2017.
Mr Eastwood, who acknowledged the “fantastic result” for the Conservatives both locally and nationally, said he was "very pleased".
Mr Eastwood won the seat from Labour's Paula Sherriff with a majority of 1,561.
He put some of his success down to running a positive campaign, saying: “There has been quite a lot of unpleasantness in politics, maybe Brexit has contributed to that.
“I would like to see politics be a bit nicer in the future."
He said to residents of Dewsbury, Mirfield and Denby Dale: "Thank you for putting your faith in me and also to my campaign team and all the volunteers who helped me achieve this amazing result."
