THE SNP’s Martin Docherty-Hughes clung on to his West Dunbartonshire seat, with his majority slashed by 12,000 votes to just over 2,000.

Mr Docherty-Hughes – who said the electorate had been “been dragged to the polls against their will by a Prime Minister who is clearly on the way out” before the result came in – received 18,890 votes.

They have made it quite clear that they are unhappy with the state of affairs across the UK and be in no doubt to the people of West Dunbartonshire that I re-dedicate myself to your service.”
