Former Pudsey MP Stuart Andrew wins Daventry with reduced majority

Former Pudsey MP Stuart Andrew held his new seat – Daventry – for the Conservative Party, but with a reduced majority.

Mr Andrew left the now defunct seat of Pudsey after 14 years. Following boundary changes, Pudsey became part of the new Leeds West and Pudsey constituency.

In Daventry, he faced strong competition from Labour candidate Marianne Kimani and the Reform UK’s Scott Cameron. He received 17,872 votes, maintaining Daventry’s position as a Conservative stronghold in West Northamptonshire since the constituency was established in 1974.

Labour came second with 14,860 votes, a majority of 3,012. Previous Conservative MP Chris Heaton-Harris won in 2019 with a 26,080 majority. Reform UK finished third in Daventry with 10,636 votes.

Labour’s Rachel Reeves won Leeds West and Pudsey with a majority of 12,392.
