MP hopes to 'move towards a different style of politics'

The returning Hereford and Herefordshire South MP Jesse Norman has said he hopes people can move on from the bitterness of the general election campaign and "move towards a different style of politics."

He said: "This has been a very tough, closely fought election, people tend to do silly things sometimes in the heat of the moment and that's not confined to any political party."

Mr Norman said that wasn't the case in his constituency, where he thought there had been a good-natured campaign.

Mark Garnier, the re-elected Conservative MP for Wyre Forest, said: "Boris Johnson has got to heal the wounds that we have over Brexit", adding "if we are a divided country, we're not going to be able to take advantage of the opportunities Brexit has to offer."
