What a fantastic result - the Liberal Democrats won 38.1% of South Cambridgeshire votes in the European election, and two wonderful Lib Dem MEPs, Barbara Gibson and Lucy Nethsingha, will be representing East of England in Brussels. Our Remain voice is being heard loud and clear in a constituency that saw one of the highest turnouts in the country (48.31%).
A huge thank you to all of our supporters and our members who worked very hard to achieve this brilliant result, especially with such a short run-up to the election.
On the national level, the Lib Dems have followed up the recent local elections triumph of 704 new councillors with 16 MEPs and 20% of the vote share in the European election, not forgetting the amazing win for Naomi Long, a new MEP for Alliance, our sister party in Northern Ireland.
We will keep working hard to give this set of diverse and fantastic MEPs their full term, fighting for liberal values in Europe and trying every way we can to stop Brexit.
