p02n7g54

The votes have been counted and the results are in. It was announced today that the Conservative Party have won a majority, giving Prime Minister David Cameron another five years inside number 10 as leader of the government.

It also saw poorer than expected results for the Labour Party, which was almost entirely wiped out by the SNP in previously safe seats, with an even bleaker picture for the Liberal Democrats who won just eight seats in total.

But what exactly was the outlook across the red rose county? In some constituencies, the national trend was bucked, as Labour gained two seats in Burnley and Lancaster and Fleetwood respectively. Below are the full results across all constituencies in Lancashire.
