IT was a night bathed in dazzling bright blue for Conservatives in Somerset as the General Election results rolled in.

Despite having to wait until the early hours of Friday 13th, there were no horrors in store for the Tories, as all of the Conservative candidates in the county romped home, bar a Liberal Democrat hold in Bath, in what was a big night for the party across the country.

Ms Pow said: “I’m going to throw myself into representing Taunton Deane.

”This election was about Brexit and democracy, but it’s also about getting stuff done for us in Taunton Deane.”

She later tweeted to thank her supporters, saying: "A heartfelt thank you to every single person who supported me in this election.

"So proud to be returned as our MP for Taunton Deane with an increased vote share.

"This ... success signals a bright, new future for the nation."
