Jane Hunt has been elected MP for Loughborough, meaning the Conservative Party holds the seat with an increased majority.
The new MP beat Labour's Stuart Brady by 7,169 votes. This is more than Nicky Morgan’s 4,269 vote majority in the 2017 general election. Ms Morgan, the former minister for Digital, Culture Media and Sport, talked about the impact of abuse on her family when announcing she was standing down.
Ian Sharpe of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Wes Walton came fourth.
Voter turnout was up by 0.5 percentage points since the last general election.
Nearly 55,000 people, 68.5% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.
Two of the five candidates, Wes Walton (Green) and Queenie Tea (independent) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
