  • Ellie Chowns: “The people of North Herefordshire have voted for real hope, and real change. Together we have made history here. There is an enormous amount of work to do – to renew our economy, to repair our NHS, and to restore our rivers. I am ready to roll my sleeves up and give this job everything I’ve got, and I can’t wait to get started.”

  • Result almost equals the largest majority ever overturned in a single seat at a general election
  • Previous highest vote share for a party other than Conservatives since seat created in 2010 was 31% for Lib Dems in 2010
  • Ellie becomes the only female MP to represent any part of Herefordshire since Members were first sent to Westminster in 1295
