The newly-elected Conservative MP for Selby and Ainsty, Nigel Adams, tweets:
He's right. More than half of the electorate in his constituency voted for him, but Labour increased their share of the vote by 7.3%, to his increase of 6.2%.
He was still fairly comfortable, however, with a majority of 13,772.
As is the national picture, UKIP were the big losers, with their vote dropping by almost 11%.
