How the Buckinghamshire media is reporting the election

The Bucks Free Press is reflecting Tory Steve Baker's win in Wycombe with a significantly reduced majority. The MP, who has represented the constituency for nine years, told the paper it had been a "chastening campaign" due to his constituents views on Brexit, but he was "very pleased" with the result.

Buckingham's new MP Greg Smith has told The Bucks Herald of his "pledge to be a relentlessly local MP rolling up my sleeves and getting things done for this area". The Conservative, who has replaced the former House of Commons Speaker John Bercow, said it would be a "big challenge" to stop HS2 but thinks he can "prove the business case is not there".

The MK Citizen is reporting how the Conservatives won both Milton Keynes seats. Iain Stewart held his seat in Milton Keynes South and in Milton Keynes North, new MP Ben Everitt, who retained the seat for the Conservatives after Mark Lancaster retired, said he has a “huge passion and vision for the future of MK” which he called a “wonderful new city".

If you're just joining us...

There are four new MPs in Buckinghamshire, but no change to party representation.

  • Former Tory Dominic Grieve lost his seat after running as an independent in Beaconsfield. He was booted out of the Conservative Party earlier this year after he backed a bill to try to stop a no-deal Brexit. Beaten by the new Tory candidate Joy Morrissey, who won with 32,477 votes, he still won the support of more than 16,000 voters
  • In Buckingham, the former Speaker of the House of Commons' seat has been won by Conservative Greg Smith, beating Liberal Democrat Stephen Dorrell by 20,411 votes. John Bercow was elected as a Conservative for the first time in 1997, but resigned from the party when he became Speaker in 2009
  • Conservative Steve Baker has retained his seat in Wycombe but with a significantly decreased majority, down from 12.3% to 7.7%
  • New MP Rob Butler has held Aylesbury for the Conservatives with an increased majority after David Lidlington stood down earlier this year.
  • Cheryl Gillan has been re-elected as the Conservative MP for Chesham & Amersham, with a decreased majority
  • In Milton Keynes, Iain Stewart has been re-elected as the Conservative MP for Milton Keynes South and the Conservatives also held Milton Keynes North with Ben Everitt becoming the newly elected MP after Mark Lancaster stood down

Steve Baker 'optimistic although slightly chastened'

Steve Baker has retained his seat in Wycombe.

The Conservative MP's majority reduced from 12.3% to 7.7%.

"Clearly I have lost some votes," Mr Baker said.

"I'm well aware that there are some very angry Conservatives in Wycombe who wish to remain in the EU. I hear what people are saying.

"Going forward from here, what we need to do is try and unite the country.

"I'm quite optimistic although slightly chastened from the result."
