General Election results in South Gloucestershire

Posted on Saturday 8th May 2010 at 2:04 pm by SH (Editor)

Voting in the three parliamentary constituencies in South Gloucestershire has seen two Conservative and one Liberal Democrat candidates selected to represent the area in the House of Commons.

The biggest surprise came in Kingswood where the sitting MP Roger Berry (Labour) was ousted by Chris Skidmore (Conservative) thanks to a 9.4% swing from Labour to Conservative.

Incumbent Steve Webb (Liberal Democrats) retained his seat in Thornbury and Yate by a comfortable margin despite a 4.3% swing from Lib Dem to Conservative.

The new constituency of Filton and Bradley Stoke was won by Jack Lopresti (Conservative), who had almost 7,000 votes to spare over his Labour rival, Ian Boulton.
