'I believe in Boris'

There was support for Boris Johnson from these two women at a cafe in Barry, the main town in the Conservative-held Vale of Glamorgan.

Janet Harris, a retired graphic designer from Monmouthshire (in the hat), says she is "very pleased with the result".

"I’m delighted. I believe in Boris," she said.

"I believe in Brexit and I believe he will get us out of the EU.”

Margaret Thomas, a retired civil servant from Barry (in the pink anorak), added: “I’m a Conservative so I’m pleased.

"I didn’t think he’d get such a big majority. That said, to be honest, whoever gets in they’re going to struggle.

"It seems like an impossible task - running this country.”

Vale Of Glamorgan: Conservative hold

Alun Cairns has been re-elected as the MP for Vale Of Glamorgan, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Belinda Loveluck-Edwards by 3,562 votes, 1,372 more votes than the majority at the 2017 election.

Anthony Slaughter of the Green Party came third and Gwlad Gwlad Laurence Williams came fourth.

Mr Cairns resigned as Welsh Secretary last month. He denied knowing a Tory Welsh assembly candidate had made claims about a woman's sexual history in a rape trial in April 2018, causing the case to collapse. Mr Cairns denies any wrongdoing.

Voter turnout was down by 1 percentage point since the last general election.

Nearly 55,000 people, 71.6% 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 four candidates, Laurence Williams (Gwlad Gwlad) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
