Delyn: Conservative gain from Labour

Rob Roberts has been elected as the MP for Delyn, beating Labour's David Hanson by 865 votes.

The Conservative Party overturned a 4,240 vote majority to take the formerly Labour-held seat.

Andrew Parkhurst of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Brexit Party's Nigel Williams came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 2.5 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 38,000 people, 70.3% 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 five candidates, Paul Rowlinson (Plaid Cymru) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

"Truly magnificent night" for Tories

It’s been “a truly magnificent night” for the Welsh Conservatives, says one of their former MPs.

Glyn Davies says he’s been “absolutely astonished” by the party’s performance in Wales.

The former MP for Montgomeryshire said he’d “never dreamed” that they would win seats such as Bridgend, Ynys Mon and Delyn.

The party has gained six seats from Welsh Labour.
