Luciana Berger beaten in north London seat

Former Liverpool Wavertree MP Luciana Berger quit Labour earlier this year because of her belief that the party's leadership had failed to adequately tackle claims of anti-Semitism within the party.

She decided to stand for the Liberal Democrats in the north London seat of Finchley and Golders Green.

Her decision failed to pay off, however, and she was well beaten by Conservative incumbent Mike Freer.
