MP raises Peterborough gridlock in Commons

Adam Jinkerson

BBC Local Live

The woes of Peterborough drivers earlier this week were raised in Parliament yesterday by the MP for North West Cambridgeshire.

Roadworks which shut the entry slip road on to the A1 at junction 17 caused gridlock around the city, with drivers using other routes as diversions - causing further delays.

Shailesh Vara told the Commons that it was "down to a decision by Highways England".

"That decision was taken by Highways England without any consultation to local stakeholders, with inadequate notice to motorists and with ill regard for a diverted route," he said.

Mr Vara called on the transport secretary to ensure the agency acted "in the best interests of the community rather than unilaterally".

If you're just joining us this morning, here's a round-up the headlines from Cambridgeshire...

  • Labour gain Peterborough from the Conservatives, with a majority of 607. Fiona Onasanya will replace Stewart Jackson as the constituency's MP.
  • Daniel Zeichner increases Labour's hold on the Cambridge seat, increasing the majority from 599 in 2015 to 12,661.
  • Around the rest of the county, the Conservative party has held Cambridgeshire North West, North East, South East and South.

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.
