Cornwall North: Conservative hold

Scott Mann has been re-elected as the MP for Cornwall North, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Liberal Democrat Danny Chambers by 14,752 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.

Joy Bassett of the Labour Party came third and the Liberal Party's Elmars Liepins came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.1 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 52,000 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, Elmars Liepins (Liberal Party) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

The seat of North Cornwall, which includes an Atlantic coast, sees the popular resorts of Padstow (pictured) and Bude in the area, as well as the historic towns of Bodmin, Launceston and Wadebridge.

Often going between the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives, only four parties are contesting the seat: the Conservatives, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Liberal Party.

It was a Liberal Democrat seat from 1992 until 2010, when the Tories managed to take it and hold on to it since, increasing their majority in 2015 and 2017.

General Election 2019: Jeremy Corbyn on the South West

Andrew Segal

Housing is, of course, a hot topic nationally.

In the South West, many areas have high house prices and high rents, which coupled with the region's low salaries causes many difficulties for people just trying to keep a roof over their head.

Jeremy Corbyn addressed some of these problems during a campaigning visit to Falmouth.

Boris Johnson's visits to the South West included this appearance at West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance

The prime minister and Conservative Party leader was interviewed several times during visits to the South West.

This is some of what he said about the region and what his party planned to deliver:

  • On the NHS after being questioned on hospitals frequently being on high alert and having to turn away patients: "We are putting in the biggest cash boost in memory... but there is more to do."
  • On improving train lines in the South West, particularly on the main line on the coast at Dawlish, which can be susceptible to bad weather: "We will put in the £80m needed to fix the line at Dawlish that is needed and come up with a proper long-term solution."
  • On fishing: "We will absolutely maximize the interests of fishermen in the South West and across the whole of the UK."
  • On the South West Water rebate of £50 a year per customer because SWW bills are the highest in Britain: "We're committed to funding through the whole of the next Parliament."

Cornwall is to return six MPs.

Its constituencies are:

  • Camborne and Redruth (also known as Camborne, Redruth and Hayle)
  • North Cornwall
  • South East Cornwall
  • St Austell and Newquay
  • St Ives
  • Truro and Falmouth

After the most recent constituency boundary changes, the 2010 election saw the county split between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats with three seats each.

That changed in 2015, when Tories won all the seats, retaining them in 2017.
