  • Guardian News published this video item, entitled “‘A disappointing result’: Boris Johnson on Chesham and Amersham byelection defeat” – below is their description.

    The prime minister said losing the Chesham and Amersham byelection was ‘certainly a disappointing result’ but pointed to recent Conservative gains in other seats. In a result that exceeded even the expectations of Liberal Democrat activists, the party’s candidate, Sarah Green, overturned a 16,000 Conservative majority to take the seat by just over 8,000 votes, a swing of 25%.
