Hexham: Conservative hold

Guy Opperman has been re-elected as the MP for Hexham, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Penny Grennan by 10,549 votes, 1,313 more votes than the majority at the 2017 election.

Stephen Howse of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Nick Morphet came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.5 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 46,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the four candidates, Nick Morphet (Green) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
