Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate Jon Whitehouse has thanked local residents who supported him and the Liberal Democrats in the recent elections.

He said:

"I am grateful to everyone who voted for me, voted for our council candidates, put up a poster, delivered leaflets, donated money, knocked on doors or took numbers at polling stations on election day. It means a lot. Obviously the results, nationally and locally, were not what we hoped for. Britain needs a strong Liberal voice and I will continue to work for these values over the next five years. I am very encouraged that 10,000 new members have joined the Liberal Democrats since election day.

"Here in Epping Forest our membership has increased by a fifth. I look forward to campaigning with new and old members and supporters for our area."

The full parliamentary election results are available on the Epping Forest district council website.
