Mark and the Liberal Democrats thank all Cheadle residents for their support. The result was:

Liberal Democrat Mark Hunter - 19,593

Conservative - 15,936

Labour - 1,739

New Cheadle MP Mark Hunter said:

"Our area was lucky to have an MP like Patsy - I know from my work alongside her the commitment she showed to our area. For me she was the model MP, listening to local people and taking our local issues to Westminster.

"I'm so proud to have been elected her successor by the voters of Cheadle. I pledge to carry on Patsy's fight for local people. I will continue to campaign for more police on our streets, more funding for our local schools and the completion of the vital A555 link."
