Hilary Benn re-elected in new Leeds South constituency

On a very good night for the Labour Party, Hilary Benn has been re-elected to Parliament for the new Leeds South constituency.

His majority of 11,279 is smaller than at the last election in Leeds Central, due to a smaller electorate and lower turnout – 42.42% compared with 54.4% in 2019. His share of the vote was also down at 54% compared with 61.7% last time.

The Green Party took over second place from the Conservatives. Here are the full results:
