Erewash: Conservative hold

Maggie Throup has been re-elected as the MP for Erewash, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Catherine Atkinson by 10,606 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.

James Archer of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Brent Poland came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.9 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 49,000 people, roughly two-thirds of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Four of the seven candidates, Brent Poland (Green), Des Ball (independent), Richard Shaw (independent) and Roy Dunn (independent) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

In October, some people living in Long Eaton, complained about wide-ranging valuations of the same property.

Speaking in the Commons, MP Maggie Throup, whose Erewash constituency includes the town, said: "We may get there in the end with compensation...but it takes so long."

Transport secretary Chris Grayling said his department was working as fast as it could to finalise the East Midlands leg of HS2.

He added that the government would be doing everything it could to "minimise the impact" on residents.

Speaking after the confirmation of the route on Monday, Ms Throup told Parliament: "Some of my residents, who have lived in their homes for 40 years or more, are only being offered two thirds of the value of their home [as compensation].

"They cannot afford to buy another home.

The government has said its existing compensation scheme offers homeowners the "un-blighted" value of their home plus 10%.
