    The new MP for Peterborough, Labour's Fiona Onasanya, has been speaking after her victory in the constituency.

    The result, which was announced about 02:30 this morning, gave her a majority of 607 over Conservative Stewart Jackson.

    Ms Onsanya said she was surprised she won "because it was so close".

    "I'm just so grateful," she said.

    "I agree with Jeremy Corbyn that politics has changed tonight.

    "The people know there is a better way.

    "I think I won because people saw that their vote matters."

    Asked what her first priorities were going to be, she replied with "education and living standards".

  4. Julian Huppert: 'We were swamped by a national tidal wave'

    Cambridge candidate Julian Huppert said the surge of support for Labour nationally contributed to his defeat to the party's Daniel Zeichner.

  5. East analysis: A night that belonged to Labour

    Deborah McGurran

    BBC East political editor

    It has been a shocking night for the Conservatives in this region while Labour celebrated three gains across the East.

    The Liberal Democrats held on to their only seat but UKIP failed in their bid to regain Clacton.

    Labour wrestled Peterborough, Ipswich and Bedford from the Conservatives and returned thumping majorities in Luton North and Norwich South, where Clive Lewis's majority more than doubled.

    Labour's biggest increase was in Cambridge, where MP Daniel Zeichner in Cambridge took his majority from about 600 to 12,500.

    The Conservatives' high point was regaining Clacton, but elsewhere majorities were reduced across the board and they failed to take North Norfolk from the Liberal Democrats. Despite a concerted campaign by the Conservatives to take the seat, Norman Lamb held on with only a slightly reduced majority.

    Elsewhere, it was not a good night for the Liberal Democrats, with both Bob Russell, in Colchester, and Julian Huppert, in Cambridge, failing to regain seats they once held.

    UKIP's share of the vote has dropped by 14% across the region and the Liberal Democrats stayed stubbornly flat on 7%. Although the Conservatives' vote share did increase by 6%, it was overtaken by Labour who increased their share by 11%.

    The map of the East remains resolutely blue, but the night definitely belonged to Labour.

  12. Don't second guess the electorate

    Hannah Olsson

    BBC Radio Cambridgeshire political reporter

    What a night!

    You'd think we'd have learned over the last couple of years not to second guess the electorate, but there won't be many people in Cambridgeshire who would have predicted this morning Labour would have won Peterborough and had a huge swing in Cambridge.

    We knew Peterborough was in Labour's sights, but few really believed that Conservative Stewart Jackson would end his 12-year stint as the city's MP. But Labour's Fiona Onasanya was the one to unseat him - with a tight majority of just 607.

    Meanwhile, everyone I spoke to predicted another close fight between Labour and the Liberal Democrats in Cambridge, but in the end it was far from it. Daniel Zeichner won convincingly with a majority of 12,661 over Julian Huppert.

    Elsewhere, Cambridgeshire's other Conservative MPs have kept their seats, some increasing their majorities.

    But also we've seen a surge in support for Labour in their seats and the bottom fall out of the UKIP vote.

    All seven of our constituencies have now declared, with two big bits of news to tell you about.

    In Cambridge Daniel Zeichner (Lab) held the seat, but added 12,062 on to his majority of just a few hundred in 2015.

    Elsewhere, the Conservative party has held Cambridgeshire North East, North West, South and South East.
