KIRSTEN Oswald has bounced back from defeat in 2017 to reclaim her place as East Renfrewshire’s MP.

The SNP candidate, who surprisingly lost to her Conservative rival Paul Masterton two years ago, swept to victory on a night of high drama in Clarkston. 

Ms Oswald claimed 24,877 votes as she overcame an 8.8 per cent deficit over Mr Masterton from 2017.

Mr Masterton saw his vote fall to 19,451 on what's looking like being a devastating night for the Conservatives in Scotland. 

Labour candidate Carolann Davidson finished third spot with 6,855, whereas Andrew McGlynn increased the Liberal Democrat vote to 4,174 as he finished fourth.

The SNP appear to be the big winners and look to be on course to claim as many as 55 seats in the country. 

However, the Conservatives look set to gain a majority UK-wide with Boris Johnson set to remain as Prime Minister.

There have already been calls for the Labour Party to consider the position of leader Jeremy Corbyn following a disappointing night.
