”In her victory speech Ms Kent Coad, who serves as a local councillor, jokingly thanked Liberal Democrat candidate Annabel Mullin for decreasing the Conservative vote and “allowing her to slip through”.
She said: “Clearly this election was not all about Brexit. The people of this constituency have voted and they have voted for someone they trust to to give them a voice.”
The loss of the constituency, where the average house price is £1.4m and which voted overwhelmingly for Remain during the EU referendum, is a huge blow to Ms May’s credibility.”
