Wiltshire North: Conservative hold

James Gray has been re-elected as the MP for Wiltshire North, with a decreased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Liberal Democrat Brian Mathew by 17,626 votes, 5,251 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Jon Fisher of the Labour Party came third and the Green Party's Bonnie Jackson came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.5 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 55,000 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, Bonnie Jackson (Green) lost her £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

"Despite people being more aware than ever of environmental issues they still wanted to talk about Brexit and other issues like social care and the NHS.

"It’s going to be an incremental process getting them to vote Green. I’ve been to lots of schools and the children are all on board. Just wait until they all grow up!”
