The results have not yet been called, but Caroline Flint has already taken to Twitter to seemingly share her commiserations.

She said: “We’re going to hear the Corbynistas blame it on Brexit and the Labour Uber Remainers blaming Corbyn. Both are to blame for what looks like a terrible night for Labour.

“Both have taken for granted Labour’s heartlands. Sorry we couldn’t offer you a Labour Party you could trust.”
