Labour's Tonia Antoniazzi on key Gower campaign moment

Labour won back Gower with newly-elected Tonia Antoniazzi explaining that Theresa May's U-turn on social care was a crucial moment for the campaign. Meanwhile, First Minister Carwyn Jones said young voters had been attracted to Jeremy Corbyn's energy.

Four new MPs are representing Wales at Westminster, with Labour capturing three seats from the Conservatives and Plaid Cymru snatching Ceredigion from the Liberal Democrats.

Gower power

The Conservatives gave Labour one hell of a bloody nose in 2015 when they won the Gower constituency - a seat Labour had held for more than 100 years.

However, just two years later, Labour is back after Tonia Antoniazzi turned the narrowest of Tory leads - just 27 votes - into a 3,269 majority for her party.

Welsh Labour leader Carwyn Jones is expected to visit the constituency later.

Gower: Labour gain from Conservative

BBC

Labour majority in Gower 'may be thousands'

David Deans

Wales politics reporter

Sources have suggested to BBC Wales that Labour could have a majority in Gower in the thousands.

The seat was the tightest marginal in the UK at the last general election.

Labour 'short of funds' in Gower

Labour candidate for Gower Tonia Antoniazzi says she's been encouraged by the increased turnout in the constituency.

The turnout is 73.4% up from 69.2% in 2015.

But she says "I'm not taking anything for granted. It's been a tough battle and we've been short of funds".

There have been whispers that the Conservatives could lose Gower, which they won last time by just 27 votes.
