SUPER THURSDAY RESULTS: We go through some of the biggest results so far with the team from Simple Politics
‘Super Thursday’, with lots of results still yet to come in - as it stands, things aren’t looking too super for the opposition for now, who’d be expected to make gains in normal times.
Due to coronavirus and social distancing, additional precautions are in place at counts, which means covering results is slightly different - as Tatton explains.
The Hartlepool by-election was always going to be that big first test for the Labour Party - simply because the results were one of the first big sets to come in.
Conservative Jill Mortimer took the seat from labour, becoming the first conservative MP in the constituency’s history - and it’s first ever female MP.
She won the seat with over fifteen thousand votes - To Labour’s eight thousand. A majority of almost seven thousand votes.
But was this also likely given recent events? Tatton from Simple Politics takes us through the results
