Deep roots torn out

Ouch, it was a tough night for the Liberal Democrats - the party has no MP in Wales for the first time since it formed in 1859.

The only Lib Dem MP, Mark Williams, was defeated in Ceredigion.

The Welsh Liberal Democrats have previously boasted on their website: "The Welsh Liberal Democrats have the deepest roots of any Welsh political party."

Plaid Cymru MP Ben Lake on 'jolt of energy' in campaign

Plaid Cymru's youngest MP has been elected in Ceredigion - Ben Lake at the age of 24. He defeated the Lib Dem's leader in Wales, Mark Williams, after two recounts, taking 11,623 votes compared with 11,519. Leanne Wood celebrated the result in Aberaeron, while Mr Lake said the result was unexpected but the campaign had brought a "young jolt of energy".

'A sad day'

The Welsh Liberal Democrats are without an MP in Wales for the first time in more than 150 years.

The party says Mark Williams, who had served as the MP for Ceredigion since 2005, "worked tirelessly" for the community.

Chairwoman of the National Executive Committee, Carole O'Toole, said: "This is a sad day for liberalism in Wales.

"Wales has lost a true liberal voice in Westminster, a voice fighting for a more open, tolerant country."

Plaid Cymru result 'bucks trend'

Leader Leanne Wood heralds the party's victory in Ceredigion

Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood has heralded the party's general election result as "historic".

The party has four MPs after gaining Ceredigion from the Liberal Democrats - matching the number at the general election in 2001.

Ms Wood said the party had managed to "buck the trend" and gain a seat while being "squeezed" by Labour and the Conservatives in the campaign.

She said: "Plaid Cymru's strengthened team in Westminster will be a formidable voice to defend Wales."
