The Conservatives have gained 12 seats in the North West as Labour's vote fell throughout the region.
The Conservatives won Leigh for the first time ever as they wiped out a Labour majority of over 9,500.
This was the standout result of the night, as Andy Burnham's former seat saw a 15% reduction in the Labour vote.
There were also gains for the Tories in Warrington South, Bolton North East, Barrow & Furness and Bury South.
The so-called Labour 'red-wall' has crumbled in the region and the party is projected to win their fewest seats since 1935.
Our Political Correspondent Hannah Miller has this analysis:
In Bury North Labour lost to the Tories by just over 100 seats after two re-counts.
Overall the make-up of seats in the North West is:
- 42 seats are held by the Labour Party
- 29 seats are held by the Conservatives
- 1 seat is held by the Liberal Democrats
