Lincolnshire and Rutland 2024 General Election result roundup





Conservatives have held on to stronghold seats in Lincolnshire — but Reform UK and Labour have both made gains in the county.

Richard Tice has won Boston and Skegness for Reform UK, while Hamish Falconer emerged victorious in Lincoln for Labour.

Gareth Davies (Grantham and Bourne), Sir John Hayes (South Holland and the Deepings), Alicia Kearns (Rutland and Stamford) and Dr Caroline Johnson (Sleaford and North Hykeham) have all kept their seats, albeit with reduced majorities, on a bruising night for the party nationally.

Across the county border, Sam Carling pulled off a dramatic 39-vote win for Labour in North West Cambridgeshire, taking the seat that Shailesh Vara had held for the Tories since 2005.

Poor turnouts were reported across the area — with figures down on where they were in 2019, despite that election having been held in December.

Nationally, the Labour Party scored a huge victory, picking up more than 400 seats on its way to an historic landslide.
