Labour has defeated the SNP in the Rutherglen and Hamilton West by-election.

The party’s candidate, Michael Shanks, took the Westminster seat in the by-election – which was called after former SNP MP Margaret Ferrier was ousted for breaking Covid rules.

Both Labour and the SNP were looking to secure a victory ahead of the next general election, which is expected to be held in 2024.

The turnout in the Rutherglen and Hamilton West by-election was 37.19%, with a total of 30,531 votes cast.

That is down from 66.48% at the snap 2019 general election, when 53,794 valid votes were cast.
