Keith Aspden came third – with an increased share of the vote, up 4,082 on the 2017 election.

Mr Aspden, who is also leader of City of York Council, said: “The big challenge now is you’ve got a Conservative government with a big majority. They have an awful lot of promises to live up to – particularly to those new constituencies, to the north of England and to Yorkshire.

“I’d like to see the investment they have promised, for example into dualling York’s ring road, into rail between York and Leeds and Manchester, projects like York Central.

"There are going to be no excuses now for them not to deliver that investment."
