Janet Daby has won the Lewisham East by-election.
Janet Daby, MP for Lewisham East said:
“I want to say thanks to the people of Lewisham East for putting their trust in me to be their voice in Westminster. I’m so proud to be Lewisham East’s first black MP.
“It’s been a hard contest but I’ve enjoyed every minute of it and I can’t wait to start making a difference on transport, on housing and in defending our NHS.
“This result is another message to the Tories that their programme of austerity is not working. We will not stand for it, and we will not stand for their chaotic and incompetent approach to Brexit.”
