No More Lib Dem MPs For West Midlands
8 May 2015, 08:49
The Liberal Democrats only two candidates in the West Midlands have lost their seats as a result of the 2015 General Election.
Lorely Burt's been defeated by the Conservatives' Julian Knight in Solihull, and John Hemming's fears were confirmed - when he lost out to Jess Phillips in Birmingham Yardley. (Labour)
It's not been a great night for Labour nationally - the Shadow Chancellor Ed balls has lost his seat in Yorkshire to the Tories.
But in the West Midlands and in Birmingham in particular -Labour's done well.
As well as Jess Phillips gaining the Yardley seat, the party held on to all their other seats.
But in Telford it was a different picture. The Conservative's Lucy Allan took the constituency over from Labour.
The party also increase majority in Nuneaton - another Labour target.
And more good news for the Tories - they've defended their most marginal constituency - Warwickshire North.
