The Labour Party has held-on to the Stoke-On-Trent Central seat, with candidate Gareth Snell defeating UK Independence Party leader Paul Nuttall.
Nuttall was hoping to become UKIP’s second Member of Parliament, but ultimately fell short by 2,620 votes, with the voting figures seemingly concluding that the party were also unable to appeal to Conservative Party voters, with their candidate Jack Brereton finshing only 79 votes behind Nuttall.
The result is good news for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who would have surely faced fresh calls to resign had Labour failed to hold onto the seat which they have held since 1950. The result is also good news for the Conservatives, who are still holding a large lead over Corbyn’s Labour in the opinion polls.
LABOUR: Gareth Snell – 7,853
UKIP: Paul Nuttall – 5,233
CONSERVATIVE: Jack Brereton – 5,154
LIB DEM: Zulfiqar Ali – 2,o83
