    06:59 5 July

    Now that Labour's passed the key 326 Westminster seats needed to run the country – and outgoing Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has conceded defeat – what can we expect next?

    • In a nutshell: The UK will get its first Labour government, after 14 years under Tory rule
    • How it happens: There's a formal process. Sunak will offer his resignation to the King, who will invite Starmer to form the next government. This meeting normally happens at Buckingham Palace
    • No hanging about: The transition in 10 Downing Street is rapid, and it's possible we'll see Starmer enter the hallowed address later today
    • What's Starmer promising? Among his pledges, the incoming PM has vowed to raise people's living standards
    • Tory consolation: The party with the second highest number of MPs – which is expected to be Sunak's Conservatives – becomes the official opposition in the Commons

    He's the only Tory MP left in Nottinghamshire, but Robert Jenrick's already being suggested for bigger things.

    Kay Cutts, who previously led Nottinghamshire County Council, said Newark's representative could lead his party should Rishi Sunak step down after a sobering night, adding she had faith her party could recover.

    "I think [Jenrick] has the capabilities," she said.

    "He's a very clever man, he's taken the Newark seat and looked after it extremely well.

    "He's come out recently - I think we've seen the real Robert Jenrick stand up, he's felt that the policies we've been following are probably not Robert Jenrick's policies, and not Conservative policies."

    Rushcliffe’s formerly safe blue seat has turned red after more than five decades of Conservative rule, marking an historic political shift for the borough and delivering one of the Tory party’s bitterest blows of the General Election.

    James Naish (Lab) won the seat from Ruth Edwards (Con), marking the end of 54 years of Conservative domination previously typified by former chancellor Lord Kenneth Clarke, who stood down in 2019.

    Ms Edwards was elected in his place, but with a shrunken majority of just over 7,500.That majority evaporated overnight on Thursday, with Mr Naish winning a margin of 7,426.

    The last time a Labour MP was elected in Rushcliffe was in 1966.

    Mr Naish said: “I’m really pleased for the people of Rushcliffe that we’ve decided to make that change and now hopefully a Labour government can deliver on the change that people have been looking for."

    Ruth Edwards faced a tense night, after exit polls predicted an almost certain defeat for her.

    She said: “You’ve put your heart and soul into it… It’s a brutal, brutal game.

    “I think the overriding factor has been the division in the party at a national level.

    “Of course people want a united party to run the country and I don’t think we have presented them with that.”

  8. Defeated MP 'will go back to driving his tractor'published at 05:30 5 July

    Some newly-defenestrated Conservative MPs may be wondering what to do with themselves now they're out of a job, but one may be ploughing on in a different direction.

    Mark Spencer, who lost out in the race for the new Sherwood Forest constituency to Labour's Michelle Welsh, is also a farmer, with his family owning land in the county.

    Kay Cutts, the former Tory leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, said the Reform party "has cost [him] his seat", but she thinks he'll find ways to keep himself busy.

    "It's a very local seat pertaining to local people who work locally, but Mark's a working farmer, he'll go back to farming again, and be quite happy driving his tractor and looking after his cattle," she said.

    "He's got a future ahead of him."

    It's been a night of heavy losses for the Conservatives across the UK as Labour has swept to victory in the general election.

    In Nottinghamshire the Tories have also suffered badly, with Ben Bradley, Brendan Clarke-Smith, Ruth Edwards, Darren Henry, Tom Randall and Mark Spencer all losing their seats.

    With Lee Anderson having defected to Reform in March and then winning for his new group, that leaves Newark's Robert Jenrick as the last MP in the county sporting a blue rosette.

    After holding his seat, he thanked his local team for their work, saying it was "a huge compliment" to them that his constituents offered their backing "against almost every poll".

    It's been quite a few months for Ben Bradley.

    He started the year not only as Mansfield's Conservative MP - the first Tory in nearly a century to take the seat when he was first elected in 2017 - but also Nottinghamshire County Council's leader.

    He was also the party's candidate for the new East Midlands mayor role, but he was defeated in that election back in May, and now he's just lost his seat in Parliament to Steve Yemm.

    His county council seat is safe for now, though, and while telling everyone how it had been "an immense privilege and honour" to serve as an MP, he wasn't going anywhere.

    "You can't get rid of me that easy," he joked.

    It's been described as a historic election already, but for Nottingham East's Nadia Whittome a Labour victory is something very new.

    The 27-year-old comfortably retained her constituency, but her party's projected victory in the national polls is something new.

    "The last time Labour won a general election, I was just eight years old," she said.

    "What we are seeing is truly historic."

    Ms Whittome said the win is "a resounding mandate" to continue work "for justice and equality for everyone, regardless of their background and identity", and called for a ceasefire in Gaza.

    It's been a busy shift at Nottingham Tennis Centre, with a lot of back and forth, but Nottingham has once again returned three Labour MPs.

    Lilian Greenwood, Alex Norris and Nadia Whittome will all return to Parliament, and this time it appears they won't be in opposition.

    New balls, please!

    Conservatives in Mansfield think the count is leaning towards Labour but is very close - “one or two percent”.

    “We’re feeling the impact of being next to Lee (Anderson) in Ashfield”.

    Alex Norris is the MP for the new constituency of Nottingham North and Kimberley, but he's also toasting the success of the party around the region and the UK.

    He told Nottingham Tennis Centre the city will benefit from having the party in power in Westminster, in the new East Midlands mayor role, and in Loxley House.

    "Our city has cried out for serious change for a very long time, and it seems that we just might have got it," he said.

    "I believe that with a Labour government, a Labour mayor, and a Labour council, we can do some very special things."

    She was looking cheerful on her way in, and after holding her Nottingham South seat Lilian Greenwood is understandably very pleased.

    As she gave her acceptance speech once the results were announced, she said she was thrilled to see the party's longstanding support in Nottingham replicated across the country.

    "We've waited 14 years for this, so you'll have to excuse me if I can't stop smiling," she said.
