Newly elected Tory MP Jamie Wallis misled the press over his alleged involvement in a "sugar daddy" dating website, a Labour MP has said.
The outgoing MP for Bridgend has criticised her successor.
Labour’s Madeleine Moon lost her seat to the Tory's Jamie Wallis by 1,157 votes.
Ms Moon, who had been first elected in 2005, said: “We're in a huge mess in Bridgend.
“Bridgend now has an MP with no political experience, other than three years on a parish council.
“This isn't a time for complacency over the complexity of the decisions that are going to be needed for the security and stability of this country."
Andrew Williams (in the light blue top), an architect from Porthcawl, is another long-time Labour voter who switched to help the Tories take Bridgend.
“I voted Conservative for the first time in many years," he said.
"I’ve been a staunch Labour supporter but I’ve changed my mind. I don’t think Corbyn can be trusted.
"But Brexit is definitely a factor. I think we’re just all fed up of the faffing about.
"I’m just happy it’ll now move forward because he [Boris Johnson] has a majority.“
Ioan Emanuel from Bridgend (in the red jumper) agreed, saying: “I think it’s a good thing, Brexit was an issue.
"People are so fed up with the whole situation - the massive win that he’s secured has got to move things forward.”
Electrician Jason Elward from Bridgend gave his reaction to the constituency turning blue while picking up his cafe breakfast.
The lifelong Labour voter put his cross in the Tory box on Thursday.
“It was down to Brexit," he said.
"People voted out, so that’s what needs to happen.
"I’ve always voted Labour but they don’t want to do what the people want. I like Boris Johnson too. All my friends think the same - it’s all down to the Brexit.”
Bridgend's new MP Jamie Wallis, who took the seat from Labour for the Tories, gives his reaction to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.
