UKIP's Mark Reckless loses seat to Conservatives
Mark Reckless, who defected from the Conservative Party to join UKIP in September last year, has lost his seat to the Tories in Rochester & Strood.
Mr Reckless polled 16,009 votes to Kelly Tolhurst's 23,142.
Wishing Kelly Tolhurst success, Mr Reckless said politicians should never forget "not even for a nano-second that they are the spokesperson, champion and employee of their constituents".
