Rishi Sunak (pictured), who is also Chief Secretary to the Treasury, held his seat by a margin of 27,210 votes.

He says: "It feels good and it's nice to have had a strong vote of confidence.

"People have had a chance to get to know me now over the past four-and-a-bit years since I've been here and hopefully it's some reflection on that.

"Now we can get Brexit done and move on and focus on everything else people want us to."
