NORTHFIELD MP Richard Burden comfortably held onto the seat he has had since 1992.

There had been rumours that it was one of the constituencies the Tories had been targeting but realistically there were no fears as Mr Burden held onto his majority of more than 2,500.

He finished on 17.673, with Conservative Rachel Maclean in second with 15,164.

In third was UKIP’s Keing Brown on 7,106, in fourth was Liberal Democrat Steven Haynes on 1,349 and Green candidate Anna Masters was fifth with 1,169.

Mr Burden thanked everyone who voted for him and his agent Brett O’Reilly.

And he tweeted: “I have had lots of truly humbling congratulations and messages of support today.

“Too many to mention individually but thank you all so much.”

There was also good news for Labour in the three Northfield constituency seats that were up for grabs in the Birmingham City Council elections.

Andy Cartwright held onto his seat in Longbridge, with a comprehensive victory, polling 4,148 votes.

Next was Conservative Daniel Caldicott who notched up 3,576. Kevin Morris (UKIP) was in third with 2,147, the Green candidate Aysha Turner finsihed fourth with 475 and the Liberal Democrat Kevin Hannon had 365 votes in fifth.

The Conservatives held onto Northfield with Debbie Clancy beating Labour’s Robbie Lea-Trengouse by 617 votes.

UKIP candidate Clair Braund finished third, Green Susan Pearce fourth, Lib Dem Andy Moles in fifth and Clive Walder (TUSC) in sixth.

But, there was a Labour gain in Weoley. Steve Booton polled 4,118 votes – 599 more than the Conservative Jayne Freeman who finished with 3,519. Tony Haynes, representing UKIP, was third with 1,641, Anna Masters, the Green candidate was fourth and Lib Dem Steve Haynes finished fifth.
