“I want to congratulate all the candidates elected today and to thank everyone who stood.
“Throughout the campaign, I have been speaking to people across the constituency and heard their very clear message, that the Conservatives need to continue to focus on delivery nationally as well as locally and to tackle the big issues we all face.
“I look forward to continuing to work with the Council to deliver for people in Rushcliffe.”
