How Wolverhampton voted

Yesterday's vote marked the third general election in less than five years.

Looking at results for the two main parties across all three Wolverhampton constituencies, it shows how the Conservatives have crept up on Labour since 2015.

Analysis: 'Vindication of Tory strategy to reach out to working-class voters'

Patrick Burns

Political editor, Midlands

This landmark election transforms the political map of the West Midlands.

Nine Conservative gains, now giving them virtually a clean sweep of all the seats in what had been Labour's core constituencies in Stoke-on-Trent, Wolverhampton and West Bromwich will be seen as a vindication of the Tories' strategy to reach out to working-class voters, especially in places that registered large leave majorities in the referendum.

For Labour, the Birmingham Perry Barr MP and Shadow Europe Minister Khalid Mahmood and the defeated candidate in Stoke-on-Trent Central Gareth Snell (pictured) were among the first to call for the party leader Jeremy Corbyn to stand down.

It's a disappointing result for the Liberal Democrats who had no West Midlands MPs in the last Parliament and they continue to fail to make serious inroads here.

'It's all about Wolverhampton for me'

Local Democracy Reporting Service

Jane Stevenson, newly elected Conservative MP for Wolverhampton North East, said she was "absolutely delighted" to be representing her home town.

“It means an enormous amount to me representing the people of the city, and especially on Brexit, where I think many have felt let down.

“It’s all about Wolverhampton for me – the city where I was born and grew up. And it’s my intention to make myself accessible and available to the public in going forward as their MP.”

Wolverhampton North East: Conservative gain

Jane Stevenson has been elected as the MP for Wolverhampton North East, beating Labour's Emma Reynolds by 4,080 votes.

The Conservative Party overturned a 4,587 vote majority to take the formerly Labour-held seat.

Vishal Khatri of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat Richard Maxwell came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 4.6 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 34,000 people, 55.4% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Three of the five candidates, Vishal Khatri (The Brexit Party), Richard Maxwell (Liberal Democrat) and Andrea Cantrill (Green) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

It's too close to call in two out of the three Wolverhampton constituencies at the moment - Wolverhampton North East looks set to be claimed from Labour by the Conservatives, but it's too early to tell how the city's other two seats will end up.

We've been speaking to voters in the Black Country city including pub landlord Gavin Craig who told us he hoped the new government would "heal divisions".

Wolverhampton is a city that is at odds with itself. It has neighbourhoods with huge deprivation, yet is also home to a number of leafy, affluent suburbs.

In 2016, 62.6% voters backed Leave. Yet it was represented by three Remain-supporting Labour MPs, although that could change tonight.

We also spoke to first-time voter Effy Carey who told us she wants the next government to do more to help homeless people.

"I care about homelessness, just helping people, communities helping each other. I just want to be able to have a say," she said.
