Bisexual MP Simon Hughes has lost the seat he has held for over three decades.
In a close fought race, Hughes’ constituency of Bermondsey and Old Southwark, in south London has gone to Neil Coyle of Labour.
Liberal Democrat Hughes had a sizeable majority at the last election in 2010 of over 8,500 votes and 19%. But Coyle slashed that lead, winning 22,146 votes to Hughes' 17,657.
The third placed candidate was a gay Conservative, Jean-Paul Floru, who gained 6,051 votes.
