All three Westminster seats making up the Clydesdale remain in the same hands this morning.

There was a close fight for the Lanark and Hamilton East Seat, with the three main candidates all polling over 16,000 votes, and at the final Angela Crawley held it for the SNP with a tiny majority, rather than the 10,000 of the 2015 election.
