The new Labour MP for Batley and Spen Tracy Brabin was shouted at and heckled during her acceptance speech following victory in last night's by-election.
The contest was prompted by the killing of the Labour MP Jo Cox in June.
On a turnout of 26%, the former Emmerdale actress won 86% of the vote as the other main political stood aside out of respect for Jo.
But nine candidates from smaller, fringe parties did stand, and some attempted to shout down Ms Brabin as she paid tribute to Mrs Cox.
Our political correspondent Daniel Hewitt was there.

The MP for Halifax Holly Lynch is calling for tougher prison sentences to stop the rising number of assaults on police officers.
There were 23,000 recorded attacks between March 2015 and 2016, with 991 in West Yorkshire, more than almost anywhere else in the country.
Holly Lynch says too often, suspended sentences and fines are handed down to people convicted of attacking officers, which is sending out the wrong message.
Our Political Correspondent Daniel Hewitt reports.
An inquiry into the altercation between Yorkshire UKIP MEP Mike Hookem and colleague Steven Woolfe begins today.
The pair clashed at the European parliament on Thursday following a discussion about who would take on the leadership of the party, after which Mr Woolfe collapsed and was taken to hospital. He has since recovered.
