Labour’s deputy leader said voters “have given a big message to the Conservatives that they want change.”

Samantha Dixon was elected with a 10,974 majority, and a 61% vote share – Labour’s best ever result in the seat.

Repeating the 12% swing from the Tories nationally would win Labour a majority, polling expert John Curtice said.

Ms Rayner said Chester voters had shown they “want a Labour government”.

“They are angry with the Conservatives who have crashed the economy, for the sleaze that has engulfed them, for the constant bickering and not being able to get Britain moving again,” she said.

In her victory speech, Ms Dixon they had delivered a message to Mr Sunak that the Conservatives “no longer have a mandate to govern”.

Labour had been expected to retain the seat, which it won in 2019 by a majority of 6,164. 

In that election, the Conservatives came second, winning 38% of the vote. Labour and the Liberal Democrats secured 50% and 7% respectively.

This time around, Ms Dixon won with a 61% share, easily defeating Conservative Liz Wardlaw on a 41% turnout.
