Labour keeps its seats in Bootle and Sefton Central and Conservatives win in Southport


Labour have kept hold of their seats in Bootle and Sefton Central in the General Election 2019.


Labour's Bill Esterson has been re-elected as the MP for Sefton Central, holding onto his seat in Sefton Central with a majority vote of 29,254.


Mr Esterson said he was very "happy" to represent the constituency once again in parliament but said that it was also a sad day for the Labour Party.


Mr Esterson said: "I am very happy to serve the people in this fantastic constituency in parliament but this is a very sad day for Labour party.”


"It is a very worrying day for the people of this country and I truly believe Labour was offering hope and a better future for the people of the country.”


"We will not now be able to put a manifesto into action and we need to reflect on what we got right and what we need to do better next time."


He added that he will try to hold Boris Johnson and the Conservative party to account over the next coming years.


Mr Esterson has held the seat in Sefton Central since its inception in 2010 and prior to being elected as an MP, he was the Labour Councillor for River Ward in Medway (Kent).

"I can guarantee the people of Bootle, the Bootle constituency and all of the communities of this constituency will continue with to have that hope in their heart and in their mind that we will return a Labour government and we will return a Labour government in the not so distant future."


He added that he felt the rest of the country had made the wrong decision and will come "only too clear in the months and the years leading ahead."

A splash of blue in Sefton’s Red Sea as Conservatives retain Southport.


Damien Moore has been re-elected as the MP for Southport, with an increased majority.

Following his re-election, Mr Moore said his victory was influenced by voters who wanted to "get Brexit done" and a fear of a Jeremy Corbyn-led government.


After thanking his campaign team, he said: "I am both honoured and humbled. We have won this election fighting a positive campaign, delivering locally and having a strong message that we need to get Brexit done."


He suggested Brexit could be followed by 'Sexit' - which he described as Southport leaving the Sefton Council area.


The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Liz Savage by 4,147 votes, 1,233 more votes than the majority at the 2017 election. John Wright of the Liberal Democrats came third.
