Lib Dems hold Eastleigh

Lib Dems hold Eastleigh

The Liberal Democrats have seen off a UKIP surge to win the Eastleigh by-election.

Lib Dem candidate Mike Thornton took 32.06% of ballots on a turnout of 52%.

UKIP's candidate Diane James recorded a party-record 27.8%, beating the Conservatives' Maria Hutchings by 1,000 votes.

Labour finished a distant fourth, increasing its share of the vote from 2010 by just 0.2%.

The election, which was triggered by Chris Huhne’s resignation after pleading guilty to perverting the course of justice, was viewed as a key test for both David Cameron and Nick Clegg's leadership of their respective parties.

The result is likely to put the Prime Minister under pressure from within his party.
