Lewisham East By-election Sees Labour’s Janet Daby Win Majority – After Just 33 Per Cent Turn Out To Vote


LABOUR’S Janet Daby has won the Lewisham East by-election – after just 33 per cent turned out at polling stations.

The vote was triggered by former Labour MP Heidi Alexander’s decision to quit Westminster to take up a job with London mayor Sadiq Khan.

Ms Alexander had a massive majority of 21,213 in the south-east London constituency at the 2017 general election.

The Conservatives finished second in 2017 with the Liberal Democrats a distant third.

The official turnout has been announced by officials as 33.4 per cent – well below the 69 per cent who voted in the 2017 general election.
