The Conservatives have been celebrating Flick Drummond's resounding win in the Meon Valley constituency.

The former Portsmouth South MP, who lost that seat in 2017, topped the Meon Valley vote with 35,271 votes - a 64.3% share.

Lewis North, for the Lib Dems, came second with 11,716, a 21.4% share of the vote.

Meon Valley: Conservative hold

Flick Drummond has been elected MP for Meon Valley, meaning that the Conservative Party holds the seat with a decreased majority.

The new MP beat Liberal Democrat Lewis North by 23,555 votes. This was fewer than George Hollingbery’s 25,692 vote majority in the 2017 general election.

Matthew Bunday of the Labour Party came third and the Green Party's Malcolm Wallace came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.6 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 55,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the four candidates, Malcolm Wallace (Green) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
