BOTH Barnsley Central and Barnsley East have been retained by Labour's Dan Jarvis and Stephanie Peacock. 

However on a bad night for Labour nationally, their majorities have been significantly reduced.

Wentworth and Dearne was also a gain for Labour but Penistone and Stocksbridge was won by Miriam Cates for the Conservatives

Dan Jarvis's majority has been slashed by almost 12,000 to 3,571, having been 15,546 at the last election. 

Stephanie Peacock lost more than 10,000 voters since the last election, with a majority of 3,217. It had been 13,283.

Penistone and Stocksbridge may well be among one of dozens of Labour seats which are expected to be lost to the governing Conservative party. 

Nationally, exit poll information predicts a sizeable Conservative majority, with the Labour Party losing as many as 71 of the seats it won in 2017. 

Turnout figures were 56 per cent for Barnsley Central and for 55 per cent for Barnsley East.
