Nottingham North has remained a Labour seat with Alex Norris gaining a majority of 4,490.

but his majority was cut from 11,160 in 2017.

Labour suffered their heaviest losses of the Nottingham city constituencies in Nottingham North (5,730 votes) compared to losses of 2,367 in Nottingham East and 3,427 in Nottingham South.

The result from Nottingham North mirrors that seen across the country, with Labour losing votes to the Conservatives and Brexit Party.

The turnout was down from 57 per cent in 2017 to 52 per cent this time.

There were slight gains for both the Lib Dems and Greens but both parties will lose their deposits having failed to achieve 5 per cent of the vote share.

The Brexit Party candidate, Julian Carter, was able to achieve 7.6 per cent of the vote share, clearly showing that the majority of constituents are still in favour of Brexit.
