The 30,013 votes Labour won in 2017 was reduced to 26,586 this time round.

The Conservatives were comfortably in second, winning 14,018 votes, a slight decrease from 2017 when they won 14,851.

The Liberal Democrats came in third, and more than doubled their vote from 2017.

The Brexit Party came fourth, followed by the Green Party.

Turnout was considerably down from 2017, from 67.81 percent to 60.78 percent.

In her acceptance speech at Nottingham Tennis Centre, Labour’s Lilian Greenwood said: “It’s been a really tough election in November and December, I’m sure everyone’s had the same experience of the horrible weather.

“You won’t surprised to hear me say while I’m absolutely delighted to be re-elected to represent our city in Parliament, tonight’s results are devastating for the Labour Party.

“Many of my friends and colleagues who’ve worked hard and with great integrity have lost their seats.

“But of course most of all this is going to be devastating for those who needed a change of Government.

“For those who are in poverty, for those who are left without the public services that they need for those young people who feel they have no chance of a house or a home of their own, and for future generations who need a Government that’s going to tackle the climate emergency.

“Labour must reflect and rebuild and offer a real alternative and I intend to be part of that process.”
