Hayman: Hospitals threat and school cuts swung it in Workington

The Labour MP for Workington, Sue Hayman, says she believes it was proposals to change the services offered at West Cumbria's hospitals, and schools funding, that ensured her re-election.

People were very concerned by the Tories' proposals through the Success regime, and the possible school cuts that were coming up, I think that made a particular difference."

Does Workington bode well for the pollsters?

Professor John Curtice

Polling expert

The exit poll expected a 2% swing to Labour but in practice there's a 1% swing to the Conservatives.

So another northern seat where the Conservatives do rather better than the exit poll identified.

Workington election hopefuls say changes are needed in NHS funding

BBC Radio Cumbria

Politicians campaigning to be voted into the House of Commons for Workington have called for changes in the way the NHS is financed.

In a debate for BBC Radio Cumbria, Clark Vasey, the Conservative candidate said: "We need a new deal on how we deliver services. We are all tax payers, we pay for the NHS. The way that those services are delivered should be delivered in a way that reflects the community."

Phil Roberts, who's standing for the Liberal Democrats said that changes were needed, but more money was required now: "In the interim we are recommending that we have a 1p tax increase to fund the £6bn that we want to put into health and social care."

George Kemp, for UKIP, said replacing agency staff with permanent employees would save a lot of money: "I think it's a big thing that we try to get rid of the locums and employ full tikme doctors and nurses."

But Roy Ivinson, who's standing as an Independent, said: "All the big parties say they're going to put more and more money in; the solution is to look at why the demand is taking place."

You can hear the programme again on the iPlayer here, or at 18:00 this evening.

The Labour candidate, Sue Hayman, did not take part in the recording because of her duties in the shadow cabinet, and could not provide an alternative.

Workington candidates highlight Brexit hopes

BBC Radio Cumbria

The hopes and fears of life outside the European Union were top of the agenda for Parliamentary candidates for the Workington seat in the BBC Radio Cumbria debate.

The Conservative candidate, Clark Vasey, said he was confident the UK could get a good agreement.

The Germans want to keep selling us BMWs and Volkswagens, and that's why we'll get a good deal, but only by going in with a strong leader committed to getting that good deal, not going in on our knees."

For the Liberal Democrats, Phil Roberts said the problems would become clear: "We're already seeing our inflation rising, production is lowering."

The UKIP candidate, George Kemp, said his business was flying high: "I don't think it's going to be the effect that all the doom-mongers say."

And Roy Ivinson, who's standing as an independent, said: "We go into the negotiations and we get what we can get, or we walk away and leave it."

The Labour candidate, Sue Hayman, was due to attend, but withdrew because of shadow cabinet commitments. The debate will be repeated at 18:00.
