The new MP beat Labour's Pete Lowe by 13,571 votes. This was nearly twice Margot James’s 7,654 vote majority in the 2017 general election.
Chris Bramall of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Andi Mohr came fourth.

Those who have had the whip restored are now eligible to stand as Conservative candidates at the election if new candidates have not since been chosen.
