Cardiff West: Labour hold

Kevin Brennan has been re-elected as the MP for Cardiff West, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Carolyn Webster by 10,986 votes, 1,565 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Two of the six candidates, Nick Mullins (The Brexit Party) and David Griffin (Green) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Counts under way across Wales

Plenty of crosses into the box at the Cardiff City Stadium tonight... but not the kind you would see from Neil Harris's team.

The stadium in the south west of Cardiff is hosting the counts for the Cardiff West and Cardiff North constituencies this evening.

Boxes have also arrived in Newbridge for the Islwyn count.

Islwyn had one of the lowest turnouts in Wales in the last general election at 64.2%, but there are suggestions they might beating that figure this time.
