Rochdale: Labour hold

Shadow Northern Ireland secretary Tony Lloyd has been re-elected as the MP for Rochdale, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Atifa Shah by 9,668 votes, 5,151 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Chris Green of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat Andy Kelly came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 4 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 47,000 people, 60.1% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the five candidates, Sarah Croke (Green) lost her £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
