Croydon North by-election: Steve Reed wins for Labour

Labour has retained the seat of Croydon North in a parliamentary by-election.

Steve Reed secured 15,898 votes - 64.7% of those cast - with Andy Stranack of the Conservative Party in second place on 4,137 votes.

Winston McKenzie of the UK Independence Party was third with 1,400 votes and Lib Dem Marisha Ray came fourth with 860.

The contest in south London was triggered by the death of Labour MP Malcolm Wicks in September.
