The Oldham West and Royton by-election results were as follows:
- Labour's Jim McMahon polled 17,322 votes with a majority of 10,837
- Labour's share of the vote increased to 62.7% and there was a 2.39% swing from Ukip to Labour
- Ukip's John Bickley came second on 6,487 votes
- Tory James Daly was third with 2,596, 9.33% of the vote
- Liberal Democrats lost their deposit after Jane Brophy secured 1,024 votes, a 3.68% share
Jeremy Corbyn hailed the Oldham by-election win as a "vote of confidence in our party" as Jim McMahon held the seat for Labour.
A by-election in the historically safe Labour seat of Oldham would, ordinarily, be a foregone conclusion. These are far from ordinary times.
The Oldham West and Royton byelection will be a fascinating crash test - as Corbyn's Labour comes up against Ukip's northern force.
