Double delight for Labour


LABOUR celebrated at the double in Warrington with Sarah Hall gaining Warrington South from the Tories, while Charlotte Nichols held the North.

It was a bad night for the Conservatives in Warrington, like much of the country with Reform eating into their share of the vote.

In Warrington South Labour’s Sarah Hall won with a huge majority polling 23,201 votes compared to former Tory MP Andy Carter with 11,861 votes.

Reform’s Janet Balfe polled 7,913, pushing the Lib Dem’s Graham Gowland into 4th with just 3,829 votes.

It was a particularly proud night for Sarah who was joined by her father-in-law Mike Hall at the count, himself a former MP for Warrington South from 1992 to 1997.
Meanwhile outgoing MP Andy Carter was gracious in defeat, congratulating Sarah on her victory and “decent campaign.”

  1. Sorry to miss you last night Gary I was looking forward to catching up. I think I left a out 1 am these days I need my sleep. Anyway the people of Warrington got the opportunity to vote Green 💚 and did so in good numbers and we returned 4 MPs which ain’t half bad.
