Anglia Late Edition looked at the aftermath of the 2017 General Election which saw an extra three Labour MPs elected to the House of Commons.

Labour won seats from the sitting Conservative MPs in Peterborough, Bedford and Ipswich although all the seats are now highly marginal with a majorities under 1,000.

The Conservatives make a single gain - winning Clacton back from UKIP following the defection in 2014 of Douglas Carswell, who stepped down.

Mr Lamb is now considering whether to launch a second bid to become leader of the Liberal Democrats after Tim Farron stepped down.
