Epping Forest MP says election was 'one of the most interesting in a long time'

Eleanor Laing, who's been re-elected as MP for Epping Forest, said her team had run a "very friendly, dignified campaign".

She said she "did not want to see a hung Parliament" and hoped her colleagues across the country would repeat her success and retain their seats.

"Theresa May gave her reasons for calling the election and explained that well. But it has been one of the most interesting elections for a very long time," she said.
