New Oxford East MP 'relieved' by win

Anneliese Dodds said it was "quite a relief" and she was glad voters who supported retiring MP Andrew Smith "decided to stick with me".

She said: "It's quite a relief and an enormous response and I'm very humbled by the support I've received tonight.

"We've had a lot of different people coming into the Labour Party from all walks of life."

She said the Conservatives had used "divisive, negative rhetoric" and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has offered "a different kind of politics".

'Jumping for joy' at Oxford East count

The Oxford East count is well underway at Oxford Town Hall, described by political reporter Bethan Phillips as "the country's classiest election count".

Previously a safe Labour seat, there might have been a bit more uncertainty tonight after the retirement of Andrew Smith, MP since 1987.

But Bethan said the exit poll showing a significant swing to Labour "ripped through the hall" and had some party members "literally jumping for joy".
