Hove: Labour hold

Peter Kyle has been re-elected as the MP for Hove, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Robert Nemeth by 17,044 votes, 1,713 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Beatrice Bass of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Ollie Sykes came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.7 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 56,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Four of the seven candidates, Ollie Sykes (Green), Angela Hancock (The Brexit Party), Dame Dixon (Monster Raving Loony Party) and Charlotte Sabel (independent) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
