Richmond Park: Liberal Democrat gain

Sarah Olney has been elected as the MP for Richmond Park, beating Conservative Zac Goldsmith by 7,766 votes.

The Liberal Democrats overturned a 45 vote majority to take the formerly Conservative-held seat from Mr Goldsmith, the former London Mayoral candidate.

Sandra Keen of the Labour Party came third and independent candidate Caroline Shah came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.5 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 65,000 people, 78.7% 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, Caroline Shah (independent) and John Usher (independent) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Conservatives lose Richmond

Zac Goldsmith
BBC

Zac Goldsmith has lost his seat in Richmond Park for the second time in three years.

The former London Mayoral candidate won the seat in the 2017 election by just 45 votes - a 0.1% majority.

He’d been out of parliament for six months following a by-election sparked by his decision to leave the Conservative Party in protest at the government's backing of a third Heathrow runway.

Sarah Olney, who beat Mr Goldsmith in the 2016 by-election, won with 34,559.

Mr Goldsmith, who is currently a minister at the Department for Environmental, Food and Rural Affairs got 26,793 votes.
