Labour's Ian Austin holds off Dudley challenge

Labour successfully held off a challenge from UKIP in Dudley North, with Ian Austin, the MP for the last 10 years, increasing his majority to 4,181.

The Conservatives and UKIP had fancied their chances in the constituency.

"I come from Dudley, I love the place and I want to fight for people here," Mr Austin said.
