Bradshaw has held the seat since 1997, but the lack of a UKIP candidate this time round saw a swing to the Conservatives and many wondered if Bradshaw would keep his seat. However, his victory is in line with the national trend in which Conservatives have failed to capture key targets in a result that has so far surprised many.
