Runnymede & Weybridge: Conservatives hold Philip Hammond's former seat

Ben Spencer has been elected MP for Runnymede & Weybridge, increasing the majority of his predecessor, former Chancellor, Philip Hammond.

The new Conservative MP beat Labour's Robert King by 18,270 votes, 220 more than Mr Hammond’s majority in the 2017 general election.

Mr Hammond decided not to contest the seat again after being removed from the parliamentary Conservative Party in September after voting against the government over Brexit. He had been MP for Runnymede & Weybridge since 1997.

Rob O'Carroll of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Benjamin Smith came fourth.

Voter turnout was barely changed, up by just 0.1 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 53,000 people, 69% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Four of the seven candidates, Benjamin Smith (Green), Stewart Mackay (independent), Lorna Rowland (independent) and Nicholas Wood (UKIP) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
