Scottish Conservative David Mundell has held on to his seat in Parliament, winning the constituency of Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale,

The Scotland Office minister saw off the SNP tsunami to win the seat with 20,759 votes and a slightly increased share of the ballot.

The SNP, who had been fourth in 2010, came second this time round with candidate Emma Harper securing 19,961 votes.

While both Labour and the Liberal Democrats have lost seats in Scotland, the result means the Conservatives have at least matched their tally from the last general election.
