Mum helps Prince William with cyber-bullying strategy

The mother of a Worcester teenager who took his own life has been recruited by Prince William to work on a new cyber-bullying task force.

Earlier this year Lucy Alexander launched the Campaign for Kindness in memory of 17-year-old Felix who died in 2016.

A video released by Kensington Palace shows the Prince meeting Lucy, and Chloe Hine - who herself was bullied online as a teenager.

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."

Worcester MP's 'nerve wracking' poll night

Robin Walker has been re-elected as the MP for Worcester, but admits he had a nerve wracking election night, with exit polls suggesting he could lose the seat.

The Conservative MP saw his majority halved to 2,490.

Election result
BBC

I think of course when we saw the exit polls and when people were telling me I had an 81% chance of losing my seat, obviously that was nerve wracking. But actually it wasn't reflected in what I was seeing on the doorsteps of Worcester and the support I'd seen from people out on my canvassing. I was very pleased to see that the vote turned out to be the strongest... we've ever received on the current boundaries of the Worcester constituency."

Collapse of the UKIP vote locally

James Pearson

Political reporter, BBC Hereford & Worcester

A big story of the night locally has been the collapse of the UKIP vote in constituencies like Worcester, Redditch and Wyre Forest, which saw the party lose 6-7,000 votes at a time.

UKIP's candidate for Worcester Paul Hickling spoke to us as the night developed.

He said: "Some people told me they were disappointed when Nigel Farage left. They said they finally had someone [Farage] they believed in.

"Another group told me they were going to vote tactically with the Tories and support Brexit.

"Another group told me they had voted Labour, then they voted for us in 2015 and then they voted Tory."

All blue in Herefordshire and Worcestershire

James Pearson

Political reporter, BBC Hereford & Worcester

It’s all blue once again for Herefordshire and Worcestershire, with seven of our eight Tory MPs holding on to their seats and Rachel Maclean becoming the new Conservative MP for Redditch with a majority of 7,363.

The closest constituency was Worcester, where Brexit Minister Robin Walker saw his majority more than halved to 2,490. Here as elsewhere Labour and the Conservatives gained votes from UKIP, who saw their vote collapse.

Perhaps the real story of the night has been the return to two party politics, with voters deserting the smaller parties and returning to Labour and the Conservatives.

Elsewhere, other Conservative MPs increased their majorities, including Mark Garnier in the Wyre Forest, Nigel Huddleston in Mid Worcestershire and Local Government Secretary Sajid Javid in Bromsgrove.
