Nuneaton: Conservative hold

Marcus Jones has been re-elected as the MP for Nuneaton, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate, who has held the seat since 2010, beat Labour's Zoe Mayou by 13,144 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.

Richard Brighton-Knight of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Keith Kondakor came fourth.

The constituency has been seen as an important indicator of the national result since 1997.

Voter turnout was down by 2.2 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 45,000 people, 64.3% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the four candidates, Mr Brighton-Knight and Mr Kondakor, lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Conservatives hold onto Nuneaton

This is the place where two years ago at 1am Ed Miliband knew he'd lost the election for Labour.

It's a semi-marginal conservative held constituency known as a bellwether seat because it changes hands between Labour and Conservatives and tends to go with whichever party forms the government.
