Ian Byrne has been elected MP for Liverpool West Derby, meaning that the Labour Party holds the seat with a decreased majority.
The new MP beat Conservative Tom Bradley by 29,984 votes. This was fewer than Stephen Twigg’s 32,908 vote majority in the 2017 general election.
Ray Pearson of the Brexit Party came third and the Liberal Party's Steve Radford came fourth.
Voter turnout was down by 2.3 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.
Four of the six candidates, Ray Pearson (The Brexit Party), Steve Radford (Liberal Party), Paul Parr (Liberal Democrat) and William Ward (Green) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
