Cambridgeshire and Peterborough final round: Conservative win
Labour is traditionally strong in Peterborough itself, so the difference between its figure in coming third and the Liberl Democrat one in coming second is worth noting.
Cambridgeshire first round
James Palmer (Conservative): 76,064
Rob Cantrill (Liberal Democrat): 47,026
Kevin Price (Labour): 15,931.
Paul Bullen (UKIP): 15,93
Julie Howell (Green): 12,628
Peter Dawe (Independent): 9,176
Stephen Goldspink (English Democrats): 2,256
West Midlands final round: Conservative win
Street (pictured right): 238,628
Winning in the city of Joe Chamberlain and its environs is a big, symbolic moment for the kind of Toryism Theresa May wants to shape – what Nick Timothy once described on this site as “Erdington conservatism”.
West Midlands first round
Sion Simon (Labour): 210,259.
Andy Street (Conservative): 216,280.
Beverley Nielson (Liberal Democrat): 30,378.
Pete Durnell (UKIP): 29,051
James Burn (Green): 24,260
Graham Steveson (Communist): 5,696

Norma Redfearn (Labour): 29,655
Stewart Hay (Conservative): 16,164
John Appleby (Liberal Democrat): 3,537
Stuart Houghton (UKIP): 3,248
Went by the book – pretty much what one would expect. The returns from the Tynemouth constituency, which seems to be a Tory target for June 8, will be studied closely.
Teesside final round: Conservative win
Jeffrey: 39, 797
The Conservatives have been quietly hopeful for weeks about springing a surprise in this traditional Labour stronghold – and have duly done so.
Manchester: Labour win
Andy Burnham (Labour): 359,352.
Sean Anstee (Conservative): 128,752
Jane Brophy (Liberal Democrat): 34,334
Stephen Morris (English Democrats): 11,115
Shneur Odze (UKIP): 10,583
Will Patterson (Green): 13,424
John Farmer (Independent): 3,360
Emphatic win for Burnham who scoops up over 60 per cent of the vote in a result that gives Labour its biggest boost of the day so far. Not much for the Conservatives from George Osborne’s Northern Powerhouse here.
Liverpool City Region: Labour win
Steve Rotheram (Labour): 171,167.
Tony Caldeira (Conservative) 58,805 .
Carl Cashman (Liberal Democrat) 19,751.

Paula Walters (UKIP) 11,946.
Roger Bannister (TUSC) 7,881.
Tabitha Morton (Women) 4,287.
Paul Breen (Jury) 729.
Liverpool goes as expected, though the Tories are second. Rotheram will not now contest his former seat in Liverpool Walton on June 8.
Teesside first round
Ben Houchen (Conservative): 40,278
Sue Jeffrey (Labour): 39,797
Chris Foote-Wood (Liberal Democrat): 12,550
UKIP (John Tennan): 9,475

It was always going to be a close contest, but Mansell didn’t pick up enough of the transfers to get her over the winning line.

Lesley Ann Mansell (Labour): 43,627.
Stephen Williams (Liberal Democrat) 39,794.

Brian Whitmore (UKIP): 7,764.
Eddie Todd (Independent): 5,344.
Chris Whitwood (Yorkshire Party): 3,235
Steve Williams (Independent): 1,531
No need for a second round here. This is Labour heartland territory, and Jones duly scooped up more than half the vote.
