Darren Henry has won the seat in Broxtowe for the Conservatives on his third attempt at becoming an MP.
Henry won with 26,602 votes which was 48.1% of the votes while runner up Greg Marshall had 21,271 votes and 38.5% of the votes.
Speaking to NTU Election Special after the declaration, he said; “I wasn’t expecting it, I thought it’d be very very tight, I didn’t know which way it was going to go but I’m absolutely delighted.
“I do feel a weight on my shoulders to carry out what the people of Broxtowe want me to do, I need to serve them, I will work hard to do that.
“Clearly our message won out on the doorstep that we need to get Brexit done so we can do things like rebuild QMC, revitalise Stapleford town centre and not continue on this narrative about Brexit.
“First of all, I want to listen, so tomorrow I’m going to hold my first surgery.”
The Green Party candidate Kat Boettge came in fourth with 1,806 votes whilst Amy Dalla Mura of the English Democrats and Teck Khong, an Independent, won 432 and 321 votes respectively.
