Cardiff Central: Labour hold

Jo Stevens has been re-elected as the MP for Cardiff Central, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Meirion Jenkins by 17,179 votes, 17 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Bablin Molik of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Brexit Party's Gareth Pearce came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 2.8 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 42,000 people, roughly two-thirds of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Four of the seven candidates, Gareth Pearce (the Brexit Party), Sian Caiach (Gwlad Gwlad), Akil Kata (independent) and Brian Johnson (Socialist Party of Great Britain) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
