Lincoln: Conservative gain from Labour

Karl McCartney has been elected as the MP for Lincoln, beating Labour's Karen Lee by 3,514 votes.

The Conservative Party overturned a 1,538 vote majority to take the formerly Labour-held seat.

Caroline Kenyon of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Sally Horscroft came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 1.1 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 51,000 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 seven candidates lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

That figure is slightly up on 2017 when 66.1% of the electorate cast their vote and saw Labour's Karen Lee take the seat from the Conservative's Karl McCartney.

Long queues prompted late end to voting in Lincoln

The final ballot boxes for Lincoln have taken a little longer to arrive at the count than usual after long queues meant votes were still being cast at 22:30.

The rules state that if you are in a queue at a polling station when the polls close at 22:00 you will still be allowed to vote.
