Dangers of 'middle of the road'

Labour MP Mark Tami says he “just about" held onto his seat in Alyn and Deeside - there were just 113 votes in it.

He previously had a majority of over 5,000.

He told BBC Radio Wales: “If you stand in the middle of the road you’ll get run over and that’s what happened to us I think.”

Alyn & Deeside: Labour hold

Mark Tami has been re-elected as the MP for Alyn & Deeside, with a significantly decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Sanjoy Sen by just 213 votes - a small fraction of his 5,235 vote majority at the 2017 general election.

Simon Wall of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat Donna Lalek came fourth.

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

More than 43,000 people, 68.5% 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, Susan Hills (Plaid Cymru) lost her £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

"The political map of Wales has changed enormously"

Felicity Evans

BBC Wales political editor

The political map of Wales has changed enormously. Aside from the single seat of Alyn & Deeside, Labour has been vanquished from north Wales.

The Conservatives are celebrating a return to their high watermark of 1983 when they held 14 seats in Wales, Boris Johnson’s Brexit message resonated among Welsh Labour leave voters.

But many Welsh Labour sources say Jeremy Corbyn was a major factor in turning off the party’s traditional supporters.

They will also question the approach of their Welsh leader Mark Drakeford.

Should he have done more to “Welshify” this election and distinguish Welsh Labour from the UK party? Was that even achievable given the dominance of the two characters of Mr Corbyn and Mr Johnson?

The Liberal Democrats will rue the day they pushed for this election – their hubris has been mercilessly punished.

And Plaid will breathe a big sigh of relief that they hung on to two ultra marginals, and were let off the hook by a split leave vote in Carmarthen East. Coming third in their target seat of Ynys Mon is a blow that leaves them at the status quo of 4 seats.
