Tories Turn the County Blue

Shropshire Tories were jubilant today after virtually all the county turned blue - with seats snatched in Shrewsbury, The Wrekin and Ludlow.

Daniel Kawczynski overturned a Labour majority of more than 3,500 to take the county town seat by 1,808 votes, while Mark Pritchard ousted sitting MP Peter Bradley in a close-fought battle for The Wrekin - with just 942 votes separating the two.

Councillor Philip Dunne swept to power in Ludlow, taking the seat from former Liberal Democrat MP Matthew Green by 2,000 votes.
