Analysis: Friday 13th is day Labour will never forget

The ballot boxes and tables have been put away at the Leeds Arena ready for tonight’s gig, a nostalgic night called We Love the Nineties.

Yorkshire Labour supporters might be forgiven for desperately hoping they could go back to victories like 1997.

Saying Labour did badly here doesn’t really cut it. People in parts of Rotherham and Doncaster now have a Conservative MP for the first time in their constituency’s history.

The West Yorkshire seats we talk about being an indication of the national election picture were always going to be tough. Four of them went.

But further south, three more communities kicked Labour out.

Rother Valley is made of former mining villages. It’s been Labour since 1918.

Don Valley surrounds the town where railway workers created the Labour movement.

Half of Penistone and Stocksbridge only exists because it was formed around the steelworks.

These are Labour areas. But not anymore.

This Brexit election turned things around. The view here on the Labour leadership also made the party feel less connected to its roots.

The 12 December election returned results on a Friday the 13th the party will never forget.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire: Winners and losers

All 61 results are now in from across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and the big winner locally is the Conservative party, just as it has been across the country.

Don Valley: Conservative gain

Nick Fletcher has been elected as the MP for Don Valley, beating Labour's Caroline Flint by 3,630 votes.

The Conservative Party overturned a 5,169 vote majority to take the formerly Labour-held seat.

Paul Whitehurst of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat Mark Alcock came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.9 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 45,000 people, 60.3% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Three of the six candidates, Mark Alcock (Liberal Democrat), Kate Needham (Green) and Chris Holmes (The Yorkshire Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
