Merseyside bucks national trend with Labour wins

Despite the Conservatives gaining in many Labour heartlands, seats including Birkenhead, Bootle, Knowsley and Sefton Central have remained red.

Veteran MP Frank Field, who stood as an independent candidate after quitting Labour in the party's over an alleged rise in anti-Semitism", lost his seat after 40 years as an MP.

Sefton Central: Labour hold

Labour's Bill Esterson has been re-elected as the MP for Sefton Central, with a decreased majority.

The Labour incumbent beat Conservative Wazz Mughal by 15,122 votes, 496 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Keith Cawdron of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Brexit Party's Paul Lomas came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 2.5 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 51,000 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.

Four of the seven candidates, Mr Lomas, Alison Gibbon (Green), Angela Preston (Liberal Party) and Carla Burns (Renew) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Under starter's orders at Aintree

The venue for the Sefton Central count is looking more like the kind of place you'd go to for your work Christmas do.

That's maybe because it's at Aintree Racecourse. There are seven runners and riders in the night's big race by the way... the result is expected 02:00.
