Green candidate for Berwick, Rachael Roberts, has hailed the performance of the Party, saying ‘we have seen something like a three-fold increase in our vote across the country’.

Speaking at Alnwick’s Willowburn Sports and Leisure Centre this morning ahead of a result for the constituency seat, she told the Gazette: “I am reasonably pleased. We have seen quite a few places where the Greens have come second or third with quite significant shares of the vote. We are really pleased, we have achieved many more deposits than we ever have before.”

She also praised the performance of Green Party member Caroline Lucas, who held her seat in Brighton Pavilion with an increased share of the vote.
