Ms Smith said: "When people ask me how do you do this with a small child, it's because I've got a husband that stands by me.

"I'm going to be getting on with the local job of being an MP for Lancaster and Fleetwood, and I'll be holding the Conservative government to their promises.

"Clearly it's been a disappointing result nationally for the Labour Party and there's going to have to be lessons learned and a period of reflection."

Chloe Buckley (Green Party): 938

Darren Clifford (Independent): 548

David Morris (Conservative): 23,925 ELECTED

The turnout was 67.4 per cent, with a total of 45,448 votes cast.

Mr Morris said: "The country has been in paralysis for a very long time.

"We shall Brexit, I'm committed to Brexit, and I will vote for the deal that Boris Johnson puts forward, which I do believe could be next week.

"I'm particularly humbled that the people of Morecambe and Lunesdale have seen fit to give me a historic fourth term, that has never happened before I've been told.

"But to me it's just business as usual.

"We will be getting the Eden centre (Eden Project North), we will be getting a freeport when we Brexit. Morecambe is open for business, and Morecambe and Lunesdale shall be the best place on the face of this earth."
