Kensington: Conservative gain

Felicity Buchan has been elected as the MP for Kensington, beating Labour's Emma Dent Coad by just 150 votes.

The Conservative Party overturned Labour's 20 vote majority at the the last election to retake the seat.

Sam Gyimah of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Vivien Lichtenstein came fourth.

Mr Gyimah was Conservative MP for East Surrey before he was removed from the parliamentary Conservative Party for voting against the government over Brexit and joined the Liberal Democrats.

Voter turnout was up by 3.9 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 44,000 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.

Five of the eight candidates lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
