General election results in my area - how did we all vote in west London?

While the nation wakes up to a hung parliament, the picture in west London remained much the same

After weeks of campaigning on the back of Theresa May's snap election, the nation was woken up to a hung parliament on Friday June 9.

In the west London constituencies , while voters await a couple of the final results to trickle through, a majority have remained the same, with Labour returning a higher number of votes than in 2015.

The main change saw the return of Vince Cable for the Liberal Democrats in Twickenham , a bitter-sweet result for the party which lost its leader, Nick Clegg.

Below are the results from west London.

Brent North and Brent Central

Labour has retained its seats in the Brent Central and Brent North seats in the 2017 General Election.

Dawn Butler secured a massive majority of just three short of 28,000 in Brent Central , while Barry Gardiner walked away with a majority of 17,061 in Brent North.

In nearby Hampstead and Kilburn, Tulip Siddiq also won her seat, ensuring all three MPs returned in Brent are Labour.

The result for Brentford and Isleworth was announced first, with cheers erupting as Labour's Ruth Cadbury was announced as the winner with 35,364 votes, next to Conservative Mary Macleod's 23,182, with Joe Bourke of the Liberal Democrats winning 3,083 votes.

Ruth Cadbury's win is considerably larger than in the last General Election, when she only defeated Mary Macleod by 465 votes.

Harrow East and Harrow West

Both of Harrow's seats were held by the incumbent MPs - but with vastly differing majorities in an unusually rapid count at the borough's leisure centre.

Labour and Co-operative Party member Gareth Thomas gained thousands of votes in Harrow West from the last General Election in 2015.

Bob Blackman is the first Conservative to win his seat in the west London area

He told getwestlondon : "I'm really surprised and I'm really honoured, this is a seat that I grew up in and went to school in and lived in all my life.

"So to be reelected is a huge honour and I'm almost lost for words."

Gareth Thomas holds Harrow West

But the Labour-Conservative majority narrowed even tighter than 2015 in Harrow East, where Bob Blackman was reelected for the Tory party.

Voter turnout increased in both constituencies, with 71.07% hitting polling stations in Harrow East, and 72.33% in Harrow West.

Hayes and Harlington

From the second he walked in, John McDonnell told the press "as soon as we get the opportunity we will form a government".

The incumbent, who has been Shadow Chancellor for more than two years, retained his seat, boosting his majority from around 15,000 to over 18,000 votes.

The leader vowed to continue to work hard within the community as an MP as well as raising their concerns in parliament, a statement which may refer to a future front bench role in a possible Labour government.

"The electorate wanted to talk about more than Brexit," he said.

"They wanted to talk about what's happening in our health service: the waiting lists going up, people being treated in corridors, the underfunding but also to be frank the exploitation of our health staff.

"It cannot be right that in the fifth largest economy in the world we have nurses who have to depend on food banks to survive."

Greg Smith, the Conservative candidate who came second, caused a stir by calling Mr McDonnell a communist.

"I sincerely hope as the results unfold that there is a Conservative government elected to govern us for the next Parliament and not a government that is inspired by Das Kapital, Chairman Mao's Little Red Book and the things we have seen uncovered from the mdoern extreme left Labour Party."

The comments were met with boos and heckles of "grow up" not just from Labour supporters but also among Greens and Lib Dems.

John McDonnell - Labour 31,792 HOLD

Greg Smith - Conservative 13,681

Cliff Dixon - UKIP - 1,153

Bill Newton Dunn - Liberal Democrats 601

John Bowman - Green 571

Turnout 65.41% Spolied Ballots - 118

Liberal Democrat Vince Cable takes back his seat in Twickenham, which he lost to Conservative Tania Mathias in 2015, bringing in the major change in west London.

He got 34,969 votes this time and Mania Mathias of the Conservative got 25,207.

Richmond Park

Zac Goldsmith - Conservative 28,588

Sarah Olney - Lib Dem 28, 543

Cate Tuitt - Labour 5,773

Peter Jewell - UKIP 426

Zac Goldsmith regained his seat at Richmond Park by the slenderest of margins - just 45 votes

Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner

In this safe Conservative seat, incumbent Nick Hurd was elected once again to represent the constituency albeit with a slightly smaller margin.

He retained almost the exact same number of votes as the previous election, with Labour's Rebecca Lury gaining more than 6,000 votes on 2015.

In his subdued victory speech, Mr Hurd thanked the voters and vowed to continue to fight against HS2.

"Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner faces a lot of challenges going forward, not least of which is HS2 and I will continue to stand up for the community in the face of whatever the future throws at it," he said.

"This election has shown Nick that you can't be complacent and I truly hope that you do listen and act on your constituents concerns and represent the interests of Ruislip Northwood and Pinner," said Rebecca Lury, who came second.

Nick Hurd - Conservative 30,555 HOLD.

Rebecca Lury - Labour - 16,575.

Alex Cunliffe - Liberal Democrats 3,813.

Sarah Green - Green 1,268.

Richard Braine - UKIP 1,171.

Uxbridge and South Ruislip

The first seat to be called at Brunel University's count was awarded to Boris Johnson, who increased his vote count to 23,716, up from 22,511 in 2015.

The Foreign Secretary arrived at the sports hall and was briskly whisked through to the counting area where he turned his back to the gathered media.

He made a brief acceptance speech, refusing to comment on rumours he will be vying to take on Theresa May in a leadership contest.

The main story from the constituency was the huge Labour swing, with candidate Vincent Lo increasing the party's vote count by around 7,000 and halving the gap between Tories and Labour to just 5,000.

"It's early to comment on the events unfolding tonight in this General Election but one thing is absolutely clear I think to all of us who are being elected as MPs tonight across our fantastic country and that is we've got to listen to our constituents and listen to their concerns," said Mr Johnson.

The comments appear to be a reaction to a worse performance by the Conservatives than expected.

Boris Johnson - Conservative 23,716 HOLD

Vincent Lo - Labour 18,682

Rosina Robson - Liberal Democrat 1,835

Elizabeth Kemp - UKIP 1,577

Mark Keir- Green 884
