I’m delighted to have been re-elected in Hampstead Town.

We also managed a slightly larger Conservative majority than we managed in 2014: with our third-placed candidate now 153 votes ahead of the highest non-Conservative, compared to 124 in 2014.

The joy at this result was greatly tempered by the disappointing results elsewhere in Camden. It was a difficult night for Camden Conservatives overall, with us losing three seats in Swiss Cottage and two seats in Belsize.

This result was the consequence of a tireless local campaign. I am blessed to have had two incredibly hard-working candidates – now both councillors – as ward-mates. We all live in Hampstead Town and love our local community – and we’re looking forward to serving it over the next four years.
