She increased her share of the vote by 7% with a majority of 10,830 over the Labour candidate Dave Jones.

However, she had faced criticism during the campaign for not taking part in any of the hustings.

I was clear right at the beginning of the campaign that I wouldn't do any of the hustings. It's a very short campaign, we didn't know it was coming and there's lot you have to do in a campaign."
