"I'm going to be getting on with the local job of being an MP for Lancaster and Fleetwood, and I'll be holding the Conservative government to their promises.

"Clearly it's been a disappointing result nationally for the Labour Party and there's going to have to be lessons learned and a period of reflection."

"I'm particularly humbled that the people of Morecambe and Lunesdale have seen fit to give me a historic fourth term, that has never happened before I've been told.

"But to me it's just business as usual.

"We will be getting the Eden centre (Eden Project North), we will be getting a freeport when we Brexit. Morecambe is open for business, and Morecambe and Lunesdale shall be the best place on the face of this earth."
