Morecambe & Lunesdale: Conservative hold

David Morris has been re-elected as the MP for Morecambe & Lunesdale, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Lizzi Collinge by 6,354 votes, more than four times the majority at the 2017 election.

Owen Lambert of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Chloe Buckley came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.1 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 45,000 people, roughly two-thirds of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the five candidates, Chloe Buckley (Green) and Darren Clifford (independent) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
