Liz Truss has lost her seat in South West Norfolk to Labour by a margin of 630 votes. She joins dozens of top Tories who have lost their seats this general election including Mark Harper, Penny Mordaunt, Therese Coffey, Grant Shapps and Jacob Rees-Mogg.

In a humiliating defeat for the former Prime Minister, Truss gained 11,217 voters compared to Labour candidate Terry Jermy who won 11,847 votes. It’s in comparison to the 2019 general election when she won with a huge seat majority of 26,195. 

In her former constituency, Liz Truss gained 25% of the vote share to Labour’s 27% while the Reform UK candidate Toby McKenzie gained 23% of the votes and independent candidate James Bagge 14%.

In what should have been considered a Conservative safe seat, having been Tory since 1964, it’s a disastrous result for the former Prime Minister.
