Liberal Democrats beat Tories in a shocking by-election

The Tories have suffered a humiliating by-election defeat as the Liberal Democrats secured a historic win in Chesham and Amersham. Sarah Green is the country’s newest MP after winning the seat which has been held by the Tories since its creation in 1974. Green beat Conservative candidate Peter Fleet by 8,028 votes. The by-election was called after the death of former Tory cabinet minister Dame Cheryl Gillan, who passed away in April. Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davey celebrated his party’s victory at a rally on Friday by breaking down a blue wall.
