Resounding win for Conservatives
HFM attended the count in the Harbororugh Constituency on May 6. Unlike the country as a whole, the result was clear cut, with Edward Garnier retaining his seat with an increased majority.
HFMs Moley, Grant Lush & Nick Shaw were there interviewing the candidates and Mark Hall, the acting returning officer.They were supported by Alan Savill in the studio, and Radio Rod sorting out oall the technical things!
There were some tired people by the end, as the result wasn't announced until just before 5 am.
The Full result is as follows:
Edward Garnier (Con) 26,894 (Majority 9,797)
Zuffar Haq (LD) 17,097
Kevin McKeever (Lab) 6,981
Geoff Dickens (BNP) 1,715
Marrietta KIng (UKIP) 1,462
David Ball (ED) 568
Jeff Stephenson (IND) 228
