Steve Pound has been re-elected to represent Ealing North for another term.

The Labour politician received 26,745 votes - more than 12,000 more than his closes rival, Tory Thomas O'Malley - and gave an animated victory speech saying the borough is now “Tory free”.

In his light-hearted speech, he added: “Let us celebrate here in Ealing one glorious red glow rising from the suburbs.

“What I can do is return to parliament next week and I will be proud to have my comrade by my side from Ealing Central & Acton Rupa Huq.

“Virendra, Rupa and I will not rest until we save Ealing Hospital and its maternity services.”

He went on to say he was the servant of the people of Ealing North, calling it his position, his honour, and one he is proud to hold.

He also especially commended the Green candidate Meena Hans, whose daughter had a baby in the middle of hustings but she carried on campaigning.

Afzal Akram of UKIP received 3,922 votes; Meena Hans collected 1,635 votes; David Hofman from the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition got 214; and Lib Dem's Kevin McNamara got 1,575.
