Derbyshire Mid: Conservative hold

Pauline Latham has been re-elected as the MP for Derbyshire Mid, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Emma Monkman by 15,385 votes, 3,769 more votes than the majority at the 2017 election.

Felix Dodds of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Sue MacFarlane came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.5 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 49,000 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, Sue MacFarlane (Green) lost her £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Ms Latham told Parliament: "The page continues to pursue Amanda Solloway, but never mentions any other directors or their wives."

You might have caught a discussion on BBC Radio 4's PM programme this week on what to do about £4bn of repairs needed to renovate the Palace of Westminster.

The Grade I listed building and Unesco World Heritage site, which mostly dates back to the mid 1800s, faces irreversible damage without significant restoration.

A joint committee of MPs and peers, which was set up to specifically look at the options, advised the most cost-effective solution was for everyone to move out while the works were completed.

Pauline Latham, Conservative MP for Mid Derbyshire, is against the move. She said: "Once we leave we'll never go back."
