Putney: First Labour gain of the night

Fleur Anderson has been elected as the MP for Putney, beating Conservative Will Sweet by 4,774 votes.

The Labour Party overturned a 1,554 vote majority to take the formerly Conservative-held seat.

Sue Wixley of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Fergal McEntee came fourth.

It is Labour's first win in the constituency since 2001.

Voter turnout was up by 4.9 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 50,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the four candidates, Fergal McEntee (Green) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Labour have won the south London seat of Putney for the first time since 2005.

The Labour Party overturned a 1,554 vote majority to take the formerly Conservative-held seat.

Former Conservative education secretary Justine Greening announced she would step down at this election after she was expelled from her party for rebelling over Brexit.

The Remain voting seat has switched between Labour and Conservatives, tending to follow the leading party into government.

Labour's Fleur Anderson, a local councillor, becomes the new MP with 22,780 votes.

Speaking after the declaration, just before 2am at Wandsworth Civic Suite, Ms Anderson said: "This is a bright light in a dark night.

"I've been clear on my views throughout the campaign. Brexit will be damaging for Putney, for Southfields, for Roehampton and for the whole country, and we want to remain."

High turnouts across London

BBC London correspondents are reporting higher than usual turnout in London counts.

Londoners normally turnout to vote in greater numbers than the national average. The capital saw a 70.1% of eligible voters turning out in 2017 compared to 68.8% across the UK.

Turnout in Putney is now reported as 77.4%, up from 72% in 2017.

Battersea turnout 75.8% compared to 71% in 2017.

"Feels like an angry remain vote talking," BBC London's Political Editor Tim Donovan said.

But more votes to count normally means later results. We could be in for a long night.

Watch: London 'could be a completely different picture'

Half of London's new MPs oppose Heathrow expansion say campaigners

Campaign group HACAN, has claimed that over half of London’s MPs are likely to oppose a third runway at Heathrow.

The group says its research shows 31 of the capital’s 73 MPs are known opponents of a third runway.

HACAN Chair John Stewart said, “Once the views of all London’s MPs are known, it is highly likely that a majority will be opposed to Heathrow expansion.

“Of themselves they may not stop it but they could act as a very awkward bloc to a new runway ever seeing the light of day, particularly given the fact that the new Government doesn’t have a majority of seats in Parliament.”
