East MPs among Brexit vote rebels

A number of MPs in the east of England were among 11 Tory rebels who voted against the government, defeating a key Brexit vote.

The backbench revolt in the Commons last night resulted in the first significant defeat for Theresa May's Brexit legislation.

Eleven Conservatives - including South Cambridgeshire's Heidi Allen, Huntingdon's Jonathan Djanogly, Beaconsfield MP Dominic Grieve and North East Hertfordshire's Sir Oliver Heald - chose to side with Labour in demanding that MPs be given a vote on any Brexit deal before it is finalised.

UKIP 'did not have time to prepare', says Huntingdon candidate

The UK Independence Party candidate for Huntingdon has said the party needs time to reflect on the "disappointing" campaign before rushing to choose a new leader.

Paul Nuttall has stepped down as UKIP leader after a disastrous night for his party.

Paul Bullen, who came fourth for UKIP in Huntingdon, with a vote-share down by 13%, said: "The election was sprung upon us and we did not have enough time to prepare an election stance and get out our publicity."

He said the party must reflect on the campaign.

How's the election being reported elsewhere?

We're not the only weary-eyed journalists in Cambridgeshire... our local newspapers have been hard at work too covering the election overnight.

  • The Peterborough Telegraph has the latest on "how a seismic night in Peterborough's politics unfolded" after Labour gain a seat from the Conservatives.
  • In the Cambridge News there's more on how Labour won in Cambridge, plus how South Cambridgeshire MP, Heidi Allen, is celebrating after holding on to her seat. It involves something we'd all like right now.
  • The Hunts Post has more on Conservative Jonathan Djanogly's win in Huntingdon, but how his share is cut by Labour.
  • Finally, the Wisbech Standard reports that "even an increased majority for Stephen Barclay, who has been the area's MP since 2010, could not wipe the grim expressions from the local Tories' faces as they watched the unfolding story nationally on a giant TV screen in the sports hall".

Headlines from Cambridgeshire

If you're just joining us this morning, here's a round-up the headlines from Cambridgeshire...

  • Labour gain Peterborough from the Conservatives, with a majority of 607. Fiona Onasanya will replace Stewart Jackson as the constituency's MP.
  • Daniel Zeichner increases Labour's hold on the Cambridge seat, increasing the majority from 599 in 2015 to 12,661.
  • Around the rest of the county, the Conservative party has held Cambridgeshire North West, North East, South East and South.

Don't second guess the electorate

Hannah Olsson

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire political reporter

What a night!

You'd think we'd have learned over the last couple of years not to second guess the electorate, but there won't be many people in Cambridgeshire who would have predicted this morning Labour would have won Peterborough and had a huge swing in Cambridge.

We knew Peterborough was in Labour's sights, but few really believed that Conservative Stewart Jackson would end his 12-year stint as the city's MP. But Labour's Fiona Onasanya was the one to unseat him - with a tight majority of just 607.

Meanwhile, everyone I spoke to predicted another close fight between Labour and the Liberal Democrats in Cambridge, but in the end it was far from it. Daniel Zeichner won convincingly with a majority of 12,661 over Julian Huppert.

Elsewhere, Cambridgeshire's other Conservative MPs have kept their seats, some increasing their majorities.

But also we've seen a surge in support for Labour in their seats and the bottom fall out of the UKIP vote.

All seven of our constituencies have now declared, with two big bits of news to tell you about.

In the north of the county, Labour has gained Peterborough from the Conservatives. Stewart Jackson, who held the position since 2005, lost the seat to Fiona Onasanya by 607 votes.

In Cambridge Daniel Zeichner (Lab) held the seat, but added 12,062 on to his majority of just a few hundred in 2015.

Elsewhere, the Conservative party has held Cambridgeshire North East, North West, South and South East.
