Warburton wins, Labour push hard
|Liberal Democrat||Mark Blackburn||13,325||1.60%|
|Green Party||Theo Simon||2,047||-5.80%|
Without a UKIP candidate, Alan Dimmik came third last time with 6,000 votes, this was all about who would come second. David Warburton already had one of the largest majorities in the country and despite a rough campaign his majority increased to just shy of 23,000. Labour though will be most pleased having virtually doubled their votes from 2015 and really pushed the LibDems all the way to the finishing line. The Greens have been squeezed badly, last time their 5,000 votes raised a lot of eyebrows but this will be a disappointment for them.
