Analysis: 'Lincolnshire is a sea of blue'

The political map of Lincolnshire from the Humber to the Wash is now a sea of blue.

Celebrations in Grimsby
BBC

Conservative gains in Great Grimsby and Scunthorpe were predicted by some opinion polls over the course of the campaign.

But as Labour’s “red wall” began to crumble during the night, it soon became clear history was in the making.

Labour’s dominance in Grimsby began 74 years ago when Clement Attlee was Prime Minister.

And although a previous version of the Scunthorpe constituency had been held by the Tories in the Thatcher era - the steel town felt like safe Labour territory in recent years.

The newly-elected Conservative MPs know their first priority will be to deliver Brexit.

In the leave-voting towns of Northern Lincolnshire, failure is not an option.

Lia Nici was elected MP with 18,150 votes, beating Labour's Melanie Onn with a 7,331 majority.

The Tory candidate overturned a 2,565 vote majority to oust Labour after 74 years.

Ms Nici said "the country is changing" and "it's an exciting time for the UK".

Christopher Barker of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat Ian Barfield came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 3.7 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 33,000 people, 53.9% 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, Mr Barfield, Loyd Emmerson (Green) and Nigel Winn (independent) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

North East Lincolnshire Council has plans to help create thousands of new jobs and homes as part of the Greater Grimsby town deal.

The government says it supports the scheme, as part of their industrial strategy, but the Great Grimsby MP has called on them to get fully behind the plans.
