Derbyshire North East: Conservative hold

Lee Rowley has been re-elected as the MP for Derbyshire North East, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Chris Peace by 12,876 votes, more than four times the majority at the 2017 election.

Ross Shipman of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Frank Adlington-Stringer came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.9 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 49,000 people, 68% 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, Frank Adlington-Stringer (Green) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Green Party candidate Frank Adlington-Stringer said "North East Derbyshire and the entire nation will receive billions of pounds in investment each year" under his party's plans.

He said £100bn will be spent each year for 10 years, "transforming the economy and jobs ready for a carbon-neutral future."

He added the Greens plan to scrap HS2 and use the money to invest in regional train lines.

Labour Party candidate Chris Peace said the party plans to "invest highly" in public services in North East Derbyshire.

She said Labour will create more public sector jobs, have a fully funded NHS and properly resource social care.

In addition to this she said there will be investment in youth services including a free bus pass for anyone under 25 years old and a £10 minimum wage.

Conservative Lee Rowley, who's been the area's MP since 2017, said: "Just in the last few weeks, we have been successful in that both Clay Cross and Staveley have secured town deals which could be worth up to £25m each to improve them further."

He said he has been helping to lead the Staveley bypass campaign and find a "proper solution" to reducing congestion on Derby Road.

"I am also fighting for further funds to upgrade the Royal Hospital at Calow," he added.

Liberal Democrat Ross Shipman said the constituency will benefit from the party's national spending plans.

These include a £500m investment in youth services, £35bn for the NHS and social care and a £27bn package for the education system.

He said: "The Liberal Democrats have a fully costed and achievable plan to help deliver real results across North East Derbyshire."

Watch: Labour needs to 'engage' with ex-mining towns, says Corbyn

Calum McKenzie

BBC Local Live

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said his party needs to put forward a viable plan for jobs in former mining communities in the East Midlands.

The party lost Mansfield to the Conservatives at June's general election after holding it for 94 years and also lost North East Derbyshire to the Tories.

Mr Corbyn added that in order to win back these seats the party needed to be "fully engaged" with communities there.

Doncaster Reporter, BBC Radio Sheffield

The Doncaster Central MP Rosie Winterton has been elected as one of three Deputy Speakers in the House of Commons.

The job involves chairing debates in Parliament when the main Speaker John Bercow is on other business.

The position became vacant because one of the former deputy speakers, Natascha Engle from North East Derbyshire, lost her seat at the general election.
