Nadia Whittome, the MP for Nottingham East, has confirmed on her blog she is self-isolating due to coronavirus risk.

Every candidate must pay £500 to stand and this is lost if they get less than 5% of the vote.

Do we have a new baby of the House?

Alex Regan

BBC News

Nadia Whittome is the new MP in Nottingham East, replacing Chris Leslie, who defected from Labour in February.

She could also gain the accolade of being the youngest MP in this Parliament, also known as baby of the House, at the tender age of 23.

Ms Whittome enjoyed a large majority, getting 25,735 votes or 64% of the vote.

Mr Leslie managed just 1,147 votes.

Coincidentally, Chris Leslie was also baby of the house when he was first elected as MP in Shipley, West Yorkshire in 1997 aged 24.

Nottingham East: Labour hold

Nadia Whittome has been elected MP for Nottingham East, meaning that the Labour Party holds the seat with a decreased majority.

The new MP beat Conservative Victoria Stapleton by 17,393 votes. This was fewer than Chris Leslie’s 19,590 vote majority in the 2017 general election.

Robert Swift of the Liberal Democrats came third and Chris Leslie, who stood for the Independent Group for Change, came fourth and lost his deposit. Mr Leslie, the former Labour MP lost a motion of no confidence among members of his constituency party in 2018. He was one of the founders of The Independent Group, which then became The Independent Group for Change.

Voter turnout was down by 3.3 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 40,000 people, 60.4% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Four of the six candidates, Robert Swift (Liberal Democrat), Chris Leslie (Independent Group for Change), Damian Smith (The Brexit Party) and Michelle Vacciana (Green) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
