Siân Berry, newly elected as MP for Brighton Pavilion, said: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone in Brighton who has put their trust in me and the Green Party. This is a very special city, and together we’ve made history again.

“I promise to work hard as your new Green MP and make sure your voices are heard in Parliament. By voting for me, you have demanded action on the NHS, the water companies, housing, and the climate emergency, and I will be there to make sure the new Government delivers on all these priorities.

“I am infinitely grateful to Caroline Lucas for her support throughout the campaign, and for being such a model of how to be an effective MP for Brighton and the country.

“It’s hard to express my delight at joining Carla Denyer, Adrian Ramsay and Ellie Chowns, I know they will all be brilliant.

“Finally, congratulations to the new Prime Minister elect. I will make sure you take up the good ideas in our Green manifesto without delay.”

Full result:

The Greens came second in Hove & Portslade with Sophie Broadbent and and almost beat the Tories into second place with Elaine Hills in Brighton Kemptown & Peacehaven.
