Sunderland Central has remained a Labour constituency in a rather close election result.
Despite winning the seat with 18,336 votes this election, around 42% of the vote, their performance in 2017 saw a far more comfortable winning total of 25,056 votes, which is a loss of 6,720 votes or a 13.4% swing loss.
This is in comparison with the Conservative party gaining 2% more votes this election than last, with a grand total of 15,372 cotes or 35.4% of the electorate.
Meanwhile, the Brexit party gained 11.6% of the vote, attracting 5,047 votes . The party majority for Labour in 2017 was 9,997 however, meaning in this election the majority has dropped to just 2,964, a decrease of 7,033.
With earlier results showing a same pattern it could be argued that the Brexit Party is having a more significant impact on votes than the Conservatives first thought.
