'An election we didn't need to have' - Worcestershire Labour leader

The Conservatives lost "an election we didn't need to have" because they ran an "awful campaign", says the chair of the West Worcestershire Labour Party.

Dan Walton believes the focus on Brexit cost the Tories.

At the end of the day we didn't need to have this election - it was set to be an election about who should take us into negotiations about Brexit. It was an awful campaign by the Tories, it was very negative, they haven't put very much about policy forward and people have listened to that and voted."
