Clwyd South: Labour loses seat for first time in its history

Conservative candidate Simon Baynes has been elected as the MP for Clwyd South, beating Labour's Susan Elan Jones by 1,239 votes.

The Conservative Party overturned a 4,356 vote majority to take the formerly Labour-held seat.

It is the first time that Labour has lost Clwyd South since the seat was created in 1997.

In that election, Prime Minister Boris Johnson ran as the Conservative candidate and lost to Labour's Martyn Jones by 13,810 votes.

Chris Allen of Plaid Cymru came third and Liberal Democrat Calum Davies came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 2.4 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 36,000 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.

Two of the five candidates, Calum Davies (Liberal Democrat) and Jamie Adams (The Brexit Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
