Luciana Berger beaten in north London seat

Former Liverpool Wavertree MP Luciana Berger quit Labour earlier this year because of her belief that the party's leadership had failed to adequately tackle claims of anti-Semitism within the party.

She decided to stand for the Liberal Democrats in the north London seat of Finchley and Golders Green.

Her decision failed to pay off, however, and she was well beaten by Conservative incumbent Mike Freer.

Liverpool Wavertree: Labour hold

Paula Barker has been elected MP for Liverpool Wavertree, meaning that the Labour Party holds the seat with a decreased majority.

The new MP beat Conservative Catherine Mulhern by 27,085 votes. This was fewer than Luciana Berger’s 29,466 vote majority in the 2017 general election.

Richard Kemp of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Brexit Party's Adam Heatherington came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.6 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 43,000 people, 68.4% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Three of the six candidates, Adam Heatherington (the Brexit Party), Kay Inckle (Green) and Mick Coyne (Liberal Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
