CONSERVATIVES have secured their seat in Mid Worcestershire after a general election, winning by a huge number of votes.

MP Nigel Huddleston has held onto his seat with 37426 votes and a majority of 28018 more votes than Labour.

Nigel Huddleston, MP for Mid Worcestershire said: 

"First of all I would like to thank the police for keeping us safe throughout this election. I would like to thank my fellow candidates for a very civil campaign. It was fantastic to see so many people of all ages turn out. We can be very proud here in Wychavon that the turn out was 72 percent which is higher than the national average. We are having an interesting night. Some old friends have lost their seats and some new friends have gained them."

"I am very conscious and very grateful to the people who voted for me"

Mr Huddleston said he was also grateful to those who made a point of not voting for him as :"It sends a message that we need to listen"

Mr Huddleston went on to say that although the election has been largely dominated by Brexit, he is determined to work on other issues such as the NHS and climate change. 

Mr Huddleston said: "It has been an honour to serve Mid Worcestershire."

The turn out was 72.01% with 56327 ballot papers issued.

Labour's Helen Russell came second place with 9408 votes

Margaret Rowley, Liberal Democrats got 6474 votes

Sue Haworth, Green Party got 2177

Barmy Brockman, Official Monster Raving Loony Party had 638 votes.

Margaret Rowley, Liberal Democrats said: "It is still a very strange election. I am told that we have doubled our votes so it's not bad for us. We are moving forward in Mid Worcestershire."

"Across the country I think we are looking at a Conservative majority. I just wonder how they are going to deliver Brexit. It will take at least 10 years and I am not sure that is what the country wants."

The general election count was held at Pershore Leisure Centre. The results came in at 2:30 am on Friday morning.
