General Election 2019: The results from Stamford, Bourne, Rutland and the Deepings are in
The Conservatives have held onto all five constituencies across the Mercury area as the party celebrated what Prime Minister Boris Johnson said was a "historic night".
Locally, nothing has changed with the Stamford and Grantham; Rutland and Melton; South Holland and the Deepings; Corby and East Northants; and North West Cambridgeshire constituencies all remaining true blue. It reflects the national picture with Labour losing seats across the country.
