Sussex Mid: Mims Davies replaces Sir Nicholas Soames for Tories

Mims Davies will replace Sir Nicholas Soames as MP for Sussex Mid after winning his seat by a large margin.

Formerly MP for Eastleigh in Hampshire, Ms Davies beat Liberal Democrat Robert Eggleston by 18,197 votes.

Sir Nicholas, grandson of wartime leader Sir Winston Churchill, was among those who was removed from the parliamentary Conservative Party over his opposition to a no-deal Brexit. He was allowed back in before the election, but decided not to stand as a candidate this time.

Ms Davies won with 33,455 votes.

Gemma Bolton of the Labour Party came third and the Green Party's Deanna Nicholson came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 0.5 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 63,000 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.

Three of the six candidates, Ms Nicholson, Baron Von Thunderclap (Monster Raving Loony Party) and Brett Mortensen (Advance Together) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
