David Gauke has been re-elected as the MP for South West Hertfordshire for the Conservative Party.

Mr Gauke has secured a majority of 19,550 and secured 57.9 per cent share of the vote, which is one per cent above what he secured in 2015.

But Labour made bigger gains with a swing of 9.4 per cent going towards its candidate Rob Wakely - who claimed 25.7 per cent (15,578 votes).

Mr Wakely appeared to benefit from a dropped number of votes for UKIP (-9.4 per cent) with its candidate Mark Anderson finishing in last place with just 2.1 per cent.
