Labour has held the Brent North seat.

Barry Gardiner has led the seat since snatching it from the Conservative Party in 1997.

He said it felt “pretty awesome” to be starting his fifth term as Brent North’s MP after beating his 24,514 majority in 2010, with 28,351.

He added his victory was thanks to his team. “It’s the team in my office that work for the people in Brent and create such a sense that they matter and that we care.”

However, with his eye on the exit polls predicting a minority win for the Conservative Party and the losses made by Labour, particularly in his native Scotland, he added: “It’s a difficult election for me to see the way this borough and this country could be torn apart if the exit polls are right.”
