Turnout and CON majority
The Conservative David Warburton has held on to the Somerton and Frome constituency.
UKIP have confirmed that they aren't contesting three seats in Somerset for the upcoming general election.
Wells, Somerton and Frome and Yeovil won't have any UKIP candidates on the ballot paper.
In Wells, the UKIP Wells Association Branch chair says their committee voted unanimously not to stand a candidate, as they are broadly supportive of the current MP James Heappey's support for Theresa May's Brexit plans.
Our vote share could be enough to tip it just back to the Lib Dems. We’re not doing deals, how members vote is up to them. But stats show our core voters, if not voting UKIP, will vote Conservative
