    A true blue stronghold has turned yellow.

    The Conservatives suffered a humiliating by-election defeat early today as the Liberal Democrats scored a historic win in Chesham and Amersham.

    Sarah Green is the country’s newest MP after winning the seat, which had been a Tory constituency since its creation in 1974.

    Major issues in the campaign included the HS2 rail line, which cuts through the area, and proposed planning reforms that sparked fears about building projects in the Chilterns.

    The Telegraph’s Political editor, Ben Riley-Smith analyses whether the defeat shows PM may be paying price for Red Wall focus.
