Kensington election result: Labour wins Tory safe seat for first time ever

”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.”
