Don't second guess the electorate

Hannah Olsson

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire political reporter

What a night!

You'd think we'd have learned over the last couple of years not to second guess the electorate, but there won't be many people in Cambridgeshire who would have predicted this morning Labour would have won Peterborough and had a huge swing in Cambridge.

We knew Peterborough was in Labour's sights, but few really believed that Conservative Stewart Jackson would end his 12-year stint as the city's MP. But Labour's Fiona Onasanya was the one to unseat him - with a tight majority of just 607.

Meanwhile, everyone I spoke to predicted another close fight between Labour and the Liberal Democrats in Cambridge, but in the end it was far from it. Daniel Zeichner won convincingly with a majority of 12,661 over Julian Huppert.

Elsewhere, Cambridgeshire's other Conservative MPs have kept their seats, some increasing their majorities.

But also we've seen a surge in support for Labour in their seats and the bottom fall out of the UKIP vote.
