Mixed emotions for Anneliese Dodds

It's been a conflicting night for Labour's Oxford East MP.

Election results 2019: Mixed emotions in Oxford East

Oxford East: Labour hold

Anneliese Dodds has been re-elected as the MP for Oxford East, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Louise Staite by 17,832 votes, 5,452 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Alistair Fernie of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's David Williams came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 5.5 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 49,000 people, 63.3% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Five of the eight candidates lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Labour needs to take 'long, hard look at itself'

Michael Race

BBC South

Anneliese Dodds has said Labour will need to take a "long, hard look at itself" following the general election.

The re-elected Oxford East MP said the election was "very divisive, with groups of people pitted against each other".

She said it wouldn't be "helpful being angry" at the party's leadership and added it would be Labour's membership to decide what happens.

That "internal self-criticism" should not go on for "too long" before it decided how to proceed, she said.

She said the Conservatives appeared to have secured support for its Brexit plan, but added if re-elected she would continue to fight for areas that could be affected by Brexit in Oxford such as the Mini car plant.

Ms Dodds said it was a "incredible honour" to be represent her home constituency.

'Somber mood at Oxford East count'

Nathan Briant

BBC South Online

There is a very somber mood at St Aldate's Church in Oxford.

Votes aren't usually counted here but Oxford City Council, which is managing the count, hired Oxford Town Hall out tonight for a corporate Christmas do. Once the election was called, it was too late to cancel it.

There are far fewer Labour activists than normal for elections and their candidate Anneliese Dodds has spent a long time chatting to Lib Dem candidate Alistair Fernie.

Conservatives - who haven't won a council seat in Oxford for more than 20 years - are pleased with the result nationally but know they won't win here tonight. A 23,284 majority will be too big for the party to overturn in a seat where most of Oxford's industry is based.

Lib Dems believe Labour Oxford East vote share will fall

BBC South's Nathan Briant has been chatting to Oxford East's Liberal Democrat candidate Alistair Fernie.

Mr Fernie says he believes the Labour share of the vote will "go down" but added "it's a bit early to predict what will happen.

He said: "What we hoped was that a lot of remainers wanted a remain option on the ballot and they wanted us to stand up for something the Labour candidate was not."

The turnout has been confirmed as 63%, down from 68.8% in 2017. The seat has been a Labour stronghold since former MP Andrew Smith won it from the Conservatives in 1987.

As well as the main three parties, the Greens, Brexit Party and three independents are standing.
