Podcast: Kent general election results as Labour and the Lib Dems take seats from the Tories

Labour have swept to victory in the general election.

Sir Keir Starmer is the country’s new Prime Minister after going to meet the King following the official resignation of Rishi Sunak.

Labour claimed more than 400 seats across the country with the Tories suffering their worst results in history.

There are now 11 Labour MPs in the county. The Tories have six representatives while the Liberal Democrats won Tunbridge Wells.
