Dunbartonshire East: Scottish National Party gain as Swinson loses seat

UK Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson has lost her Dunbartonshire East seat to Amy Callaghan, who beat her by just 149 votes.

The Scottish National Party overturned a 5,339 vote majority to take the formerly Liberal Democrat-held seat.

Pam Gosal of the Conservative Party came third and Labour's Callum McNally came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 2.1 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 53,000 people, 80.3% 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 eight candidates, Carolynn Scrimgeour (Green), Rosie Dickson (independent), Donald MacKay (UKIP) and Liam McKechnie (Scottish Family Party), lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
