Dan Jarvis, Labour’s newly elected MP for Barnsley Central, speaking in Barnsley this morning, said: 

“Labour fought a strong campaign but this was a very bad result for the Tories and a truly disastrous result for the Liberal Democrats. 

“It shows the depth of anger not just in Barnsley but across the country at the cuts that this Tory-led Government are making which are too fast and too deep. 

“I’m looking forward to the challenge of representing the people of Barnsley Central. They’ve put a huge amount of faith in me. I now want to get on with the job of being a strong voice for the constituency.”
