Vince Cable loses Twickenham to Conservatives

The Liberal Democrats' Business Secretary Vince Cable has lost his Twickenham seat to Conservative candidate Tania Mathias.

He joins a number of high-profile Lib Dem politicians to be ousted.

Mr Cable - who has held the seat since 1997 - said it had been a "terrible night" for the Lib Dems.

Ms Mathias won the London seat with 25,580 votes - a majority of 2,017.
