Birmingham Northfield’s long-serving Labour MP has lost his seat to the Conservative Party candidate in yesterday’s general election ballot.
Richard Burden was first elected as Northfield’s parliamentary representative in 1992. After serving the constituency for 27 years, Mr Burden was outvoted by a majority of 1,640 in favour of Conservative candidate Gary Sambrook.
Mr Sambrook has served on Birmingham City Council – as a councillor in Kingstanding – since 2014.
Labour returned two MPs in south west Birmingham, with Steve McCabe (Selly Oak) and Preet Kaur Gill (Edgbaston) both being re-elected.
Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid (Con) retained his Bromsgrove seat with an increased majority.
