Analysis: 'The red wall is starting to crumble'

Claire Hamilton

Mersesyide political correspondent, BBC News

According to local Conservative sources, Wirral West is “on a knife edge”.

It is a seat the Tories been desperate to win back since Labour's Margaret Greenwood snatched it from Esther McVey in 2015.

Elsewhere, there is nothing but dismay and disbelief from Liverpool Labour contacts... a sense that the city is again at odds with the rest of the country.

Labour will hold their Liverpool seats, and their big majorities no doubt, but with places like Warrington and Weaver Vale likely to return to the Conservatives, the red wall here is starting to crumble.

Labour's Margaret Greenwood retains Wirral West

Labour's Margaret Greenwood retained Wirral West, a marginal seat that was targeted heavily by the Conservatives after Esther McVey was ousted after just one term.

Ms Greenwood won 54.3% of the vote and an increased majority of over 5,000 while Conservative Tony Caldeira came second on 42.1%.

She said she believes Labour have done better than expected because more young people voted.

"People really value public services... and realise that you need a Labour government to get them", she said.

There was a clean sweep for Labour in Wirral as Alison McGovern also held Wirral South, winning 25,871 votes.
