Manchester Gorton: Labour hold

Labour's Afzal Khan has held Manchester Gorton for Labour with 35,085 votes - an increase of 7,898 on his predecessor, the late Gerald Kaufman who died earlier this year.

Mr Khan, who becomes the city's first Muslim MP, said his election after the Manchester bombing sent a "powerful message to the terrorists and the racists".

Tory Shaden Jaradat came second with 3,355.

Former Labour MP George Galloway, standing as an independent, polled 2,615.

The by-election caused by Mr Kaufman's death was cancelled when the General Election was called.
