"If Conservative MPs don't wake up, I think the voters will send them packing." Lib Dem leader Sir @EdwardJDavey says people were "angry on the doorsteps, and I share that anger". #KayBurley: trib.al/dwvcRFT 馃摵 Sky 501, Virgin 602, Freeview 233 and YouTube

Liberal Democrats WIN Tiverton and Honiton. Congratulations @RichardFoordLD. Devon has spoken for the country: The public is sick of Boris Johnson鈥檚 lies and law-breaking and it鈥檚 time for Conservative MPs to finally do the right thing and sack him.

This seat has been Conservative for 99 years. If we win tonight, it will be the biggest majority ever overturned in British political history. We鈥檝e run a truly brilliant campaign and I'm immensely proud of our party.

There's a real buzz in Devon today. Bee sure to vote for @RichardFoordLD before 10pm.
Managed to get a brilliant little @EdwardJDavey three shot series on Saturday morning. In the first photo he spots a bee hotel, second he admires the bee hotel and third he is overjoyed by his purchase of the bee hotel. middevonweekly.co.uk/richard鈥

More and more people in Devon are backing @RichardFoordLD because they are fed up Boris Johnson鈥檚 lies and neglect. We could be on the verge of a historic victory, but it is now neck and neck between the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives. Every vote will count tomorrow.

Six years ago Jo Cox was murdered while doing her job and representing her constituents. Today I am holding Jo's friends and family in my thoughts and reflecting on her words: 鈥淲e are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.鈥

Boris Johnson has no ethics, so not surprising he wants to scrap his ethics adviser.

It tells you everything you need to know that Tory MPs laughed and jeered today at #PMQs while people across Devon are suffering. Boris Johnson鈥檚 Conservatives are failing families and pensioners in rural communities who need action now to tackle the cost of living emergency.

We will never forget the 72 lives tragically lost at Grenfell. So it鈥檚 shameful that, five years on, the big changes needed to stop it happening again simply haven't happened. A public inquiry into the Government鈥檚 handling of this building safety crisis is long overdue.

Today Boris Johnson apparently visited Tiverton and Honiton but seems to have done no media and spoken to very few voters. He is treating Devon and the country with utter contempt.

I want to say thank you to all the unpaid carers across our country. But we need to do far more to make caring in this country visible, valued and supported. #CarersWeek

Congratulations to Christian McBride and the team @genuinesol for what they have accomplished over the past 10 years and becoming a certified B Corp. Bold and innovative ideas, such as the recovery and redistribution of phones, are needed to tackle the climate emergency.

It is shameful the Conservatives have ignored concerns of local communities & given the green light to oil + gas drilling in Surrey hills. Gove must reconsider this reckless decision. It risks irreparable damage to our countryside and undermines efforts on the climate emergency.

Liberal Democrats are fighting this Conservative government in seats across the country. The people of Tiverton and Honiton will speak for Britain in giving their verdict on Johnson in two weeks鈥 time 鈥 the Conservative party will have no choice but to listen.
