BBC Hereford and Worcester

Robin Walker, Worcester Conservative MP since 2010, says his increased majority reflects the fact his party has campaigned "very much on the centre ground of British politics".

Mr Walker achieved a majority of 6,758, a rise of more than 4,000, in Worcester, where 53.7% voted to leave.

He also said his result reflected the fact the Tories campaigned to deliver on "what people voted for in the referendum".

"I think what we've seen.... is actually a Conservative party with one of the most centre ground manifestos the Conservative party have put forward any time for the last 30 years, versus a Labour party which has moved way off to the left.

"I would hope actually that they can come back to compete with us on the centre ground of British politics because I think British politics would be healthier for it."

Worcester: Conservative hold

Robin Walker has been re-elected as the MP for Worcester, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Lynn Denham by 6,758 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.

Stephen Kearney of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Louis Stephen came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.3 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 51,000 people, 69.3% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the five candidates, Louis Stephen (Green) and Martin Potter (independent) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Tory's failure due to older and younger voters says former Worcester MP

A "sense of unease" among older voters and younger voters "coming alive" were key factors in the Conservatives' failure to win an overall majority in the general election, according to the former MP for Worcester.

Michael Foster, who held the seat for Labour between 1997 and 2010, says he noticed a change in voters' reactions after the Tory manifesto was published.

It was very noticeable on the doorstep from the moment the Conservative manifesto was published, and the emphasis on getting rid of the winter fuel allowance and the so-called dementia tax, you could get sense of unease from older voters and suddenly younger voters came alive."
