Conservatives take Pendle from Labour
Labour lost out in Pendle with Andrew Stephenson storming to victory - and booting out Gordon Prentice after 18 years.
The Tory man eroded Mr Prentice's 2,200 majority, winning one of East Lancashire's most hotly contested seats by more than 3,500.
In a night of drama, the Liberal Democrats finished third, raking in 9,095 votes, while the BNP and UKIP made modest gains on their 2005 results.
Afterwards, as an emotional Mr Prentice made a hasty exit from Colne’s Pendle Leisure Centre, Mr Stephenson thanked voters for electing him after 18 years of Labour.
He said: “I am absolutely delighted by the result and I am humbled to become Pendle's MP.”
