Zac Goldsmith retakes Richmond Park seat

Zac Goldsmith has won the Richmond Park seat from Liberal Democrat Sarah Olney by a majority of 45 votes.

There were no fewer than four recounts before a result was declared in what was one of the most dramatic results of the election.

Mr Goldsmith lost his seat last year after resigning and calling a by-election in protest at the decision to expand Heathrow Airport .
