UKIP's 'had its day' - Labour's Heywood and Middleton winner

Heywood and Middleton: Labour hold

Liz McInnes has held the Labour seat in Heywood and Middleton with 20,926 votes.

UKIP's Lee Seville came third with 3,239 votes.

And what of UKIP?

Despite winning 12.6% of the overall national vote in 2015, UKIP only returned one MP under the First Past The Post voting system which usually works against newer and smaller parties.

Given that UKIP secured its main aim - for the UK to agree to leave the EU - in last year's referendum, many have been asking what role the party should now play in British politics.

UKIP has been very strategic this time around though, picking and choosing which seats to field candidates in. In many marginal seats contested by Eurosceptic Tories, for example, UKIP has chosen not to stand.

It did well in Labour-held Heywood and Middleton - securing nearly a third of the vote - and Lib Dem stronghold Southport in 2015.

But can UKIP win a North West seat?
