The round up: Labour triple majority in Bermondsey & Old Southwark and hold Camberwell & Peckham and Dulwich & West Norwood

It’s the result no one expected. We have a hung parliament, with neither Labour nor the Conservatives looking like they will be able to form a coalition government. A second general election looks all but certain.

All seats have been declared, and the results are:

  • Conservative 318 (-12)
  • Labour 261 (+29)
  • Scottish National Party 35 (-21)
  • Lib Dems 12 (+4)
  • Democratic Unionist Party 10 (+2)
  • Plaid Cymru 4 (+1)
  • Greens 1 (-)
  • UKIP 0 (-)

Here in our little slice of London, Labour has increased its majorities in all three constituencies.

In the race we all had our eyes on, Bermondsey and Old Southwark, Labour’s Neil Coyle has almost tripled his majority, with a solid victory over the Lib Dem veteran Sir Simon Hughes.
