York Outer election was 'intense parliamentary fight'

The Liberal Democrat General Election candidate for York Outer has said the campaign was an “intense parliamentary fight”.

Keith Aspden came third – with an increased share of the vote, up 4,082 on the 2017 election.

Mr Aspden, who is also leader of City of York Council, said: “The big challenge now is you’ve got a Conservative government with a big majority. They have an awful lot of promises to live up to – particularly to those new constituencies, to the north of England and to Yorkshire.

“I’d like to see the investment they have promised, for example into dualling York’s ring road, into rail between York and Leeds and Manchester, projects like York Central.

"There are going to be no excuses now for them not to deliver that investment."

York Outer: Conservative hold

Julian Sturdy has been re-elected as the MP for York Outer, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Anna Perrett by 9,985 votes, 1,696 more votes than the majority at the 2017 election.

Keith Aspden of the Liberal Democrats came third and independent candidate Scott Marmion came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.6 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 55,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the four candidates, Scott Marmion (independent) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

General election: York's views and opinions

I've been in York this morning speaking to people who voted in the general election.

There was a mix of views from the members of the public I spoke to.

First up is Sam who voted Labour yesterday:

What happened in England's biggest county?

We have one of the of the most dramatic results in recent General Election history.

Instead of the expected clear increased majority in the House Of Commons, the Conservatives lost seats and we have a hung parliament.

All North Yorkshire MPs kept their seats and the Conservatives continue to form a ring around the Labour seat of York Central.

Here's Phil Bodmer to round up what happened in England's largest county:
