Pudsey: Conservative hold

Conservative MP Stuart Andrew has held his Pudsey seat, winning with an increased majority.

The Conservative MP beat Labour's Jane Aitchison by 3,517 votes, building on his majority of just 317 at the 2017 election.

Ian Dowling of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Quinn Daley came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.2 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 54,000 people, roughly three-quarters 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 five candidates, Quinn Daley and Bob Buxton (The Yorkshire Party), lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

In Leeds, we have some constituencies where if you win them, invariably you win the election.

Some of those key seats like Pudsey where there is a majority of just 331.

If you go out along the M62 corridor towards Keighley, 249 votes were the difference leading to Labour gaining from the Conservatives last time out.

Seats like that hold the key to the national election result - it's no surprise that we've seen parties launch their manifestos in West Yorkshire.

'Government must change': West Yorkshire MP, Stuart Andrew

Prime Minister Theresa May is due to meet Conservative MPs to set out her case for being allowed to stay in Downing Street.

If she does, West Yorkshire Conservative MP Stuart Andrew says she "must start listening to her backbenchers".

A recount was held, the returned MP said "it has been a very tense night" but called it a "disappointing night" for the party as a whole.

In an interview on BBC Radio Leeds he said that the party now has some "serious messages from the public to think about."

We've got some serious questions to ask ourselves as a party. There were certain things about the campaign that weren't effective."
