Conservative MP Johnny Mercer, who held his seat in Plymouth Moor View, wants the country to "move on".

"It’s been a very difficult time in politics," he said.

“I think the British people have given a very clear signal tonight about what they think of the hard left which has infiltrated the Labour Party.

"I hope we can all move on, join together and realise the extraordinary potential that we know this city has."

Election 2109 Devon: Plymouth Moor View

Plymouth

Bordered by Dartmoor and the River Tamar, Plymouth Moor View covers the northern part of the naval city.

The constituency came into being in 2010 after the last round of national electoral boundary changes.

Considered the more working class of Plymouth's two seats, it has more social housing than its southern neighbour.

It is also a base for several industrial areas, as well as the city's Derriford Hospital - a major trauma centre for the South West and major city employer.

Alison Seabeck won the seat for Labour in 2010 when the seat was first created until Tory Johnny Mercer won it in 2015 and held it in 2017.

Although The Brexit Party fielded a candidate in the city's other constituency, Sutton and Devonport, it did not do so in Moor View for the 2019 poll.

Election staff in Plymouth will be monitoring counting carefully this year. Last month it was revealed that hundreds of students and under-18s were registered to vote without their consent following admin errors.

General Election 2019: Plymouth divided by life expectancy

Welcome to Plymouth sign

Travelling to Plymouth, signs on the A38 welcome you to "Britain's Ocean City" and feature the famous Smeaton's Tower lighthouse looking towards the Atlantic Ocean.

But this picturesque image does not tell the whole story of what is actually quite a city of contrasts - sometimes within the same electoral area.

The deprived dockyard area in Stonehouse contrasts sharply with the Edwardian terraced housing of relatively affluent Peverell.

Those living in Peverell can expect to live eight years longer than people who live in Stonehouse.

This is despite the two areas voting for the same MP in the Sutton and Devonport constituency - the 87th most deprived constituency out of 533 in the UK, according to government figures.

What did people have to say about this and who they planned to vote for? You can find out here.

General Election 2019: Jeremy Corbyn on the South West

Andrew Segal

BBC South West

Housing is, of course, a hot topic nationally.

In the South West, many areas have high house prices and high rents, which coupled with the region's low salaries causes many difficulties for people just trying to keep a roof over their head.

Jeremy Corbyn addressed some of these problems during a campaigning visit to Falmouth.
