Vale Of Clwyd: Conservative gain

James Davies has been elected as the MP for Vale Of Clwyd, beating Labour's Chris Ruane by 1,827 votes.

The Conservative Party overturned a 2,379 vote majority to take the formerly Labour-held seat.

Glenn Swingler of Plaid Cymru came third and the Brexit Party's Peter Dain came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 2.3 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 37,000 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.

Three of the five candidates, Glenn Swingler (Plaid Cymru), Peter Dain (The Brexit Party) and Gavin Scott (Liberal Democrat) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
