THERE were jubilant scenes in Bradford as Labour comfortably kept its three seats, putting to bed any talk of close races.

In a triumphant speech, Bradford East MP Imran Hussain said: “I have not seen results like this in a generation.”

But there will be soul-searching ahead for both the Liberal Democrats and UKIP, who lost their deposits in all three seats.


The Richard Dunn sports centre in Odsal hosted the count for Bradford South, East and West and the first result came in at around 3.15am.


Despite talk of a serious challenge from Conservative candidate Tanya Graham, Bradford South’s Labour incumbent Judith Cummins increased her majority to 6,700, winning more than half of all votes cast.

In her victory speech, Mrs Cummins said: “When I was elected I promised to put the interests of local people at the centre of everything I do. I think that that is reflected in tonight’s results.

“This election was called by a Prime Minister putting her own and her own party’s interests before the interests of our country.

“It was about so much more than Brexit. It was about the NHS, about cuts to police, about funding for education, about attacks to the savings of pensioners. The people of Bradford South have once again voted to reject what the Conservatives were proposing.”
