Maldon's John Whittingdale: 'UKIP voters haven't turned to Tories'

The Conservative candidate for Maldon, John Whittingdale, said it looked from initial results like UKIP voters hadn't turned to the Tories in the numbers expected.

He's been talking to BBC Essex as he and his fellow candidates wait for the results to come in. The turnout in Maldon was 70.4%.

"However much you say it's about Brexit... when it comes to the actual poll, a whole host of different factors come into play," he said.

"The initial results suggest while UKIP vote has dropped dramatically, as I think most people expected, it hasn't necessarily all come across to the Conservative party, which we'd hoped it might. If that is the case, it's going to affect the result."
