Labour's three victories in Chester, Ellesmere Port and Helsby in the General Election mean those MPs now have some of the safest seats in the country.

The political party swept to power last week with a landslide in terms of seats, winning 411 of them plus the traditionally uncontested Speaker's seat, as the previous Conservative Government collapsed in popularity.

But the low 34 per cent vote share recorded by Labour – only slightly up from the 2019 General Election, where they suffered a heavy defeat – has meant many of the 411 MPs are now in marginal constituencies across Great Britain.

That is not the case for new Chester North and Neston MP Samantha Dixon, Ellesmere Port and Bromborough MP Justin Madders or Runcorn and Helsby MP Mike Amesbury, however.

Each of the three MPs have recorded five-figure margins of victory for their seats, in which the boundaries have been significantly changed from 2019.

Mr Madders has arguably benefitted from the changes, as his 16,908-vote majority over Reform UK's Michael Aldred means he now has one of the strongest majorities in the UK. The largest recorded majority this year was for Labour's Peter Dowd in Bootle, with 21,983, while the smallest was for Labour's David Pinto-Duschinsky in Hendon, with 15.

Mr Amesbury won a 14,696-vote majority over Reform UK's Jason Moorcroft for Runcorn and Helsby, while Samantha Dixon recorded an 11,870-vote majority over the Conservative candidate Simon Eardley.

For context, all three have recorded majorities higher than the new Prime Minister Sir Keir Starmer, who took an 11,572-vote majority in Holborn and St Pancras.

For Chester residents, that number of votes majority is the highest ever recorded for the area, beating the 11,002-vote majority recorded by the Conservatives' Basil Nield in the 1955 General Election in the former City of Chester seat.

For Frodsham and Helsby residents, the 14,696 majority is the highest recorded for their towns since they were part of the Eddisbury constituency in 1987, when the Conservatives' Alastair Goodlad won with a majority of 15,835 in that year's General Election.

And for Ellesmere Port residents, the 16,908 majority is the highest since the town was part of the Wirral constituency in the 1959 General Election, when the Conservatives' Selwyn Lloyd won with a 21,002-vote majority.

Ms Dixon, as part of her acceptance speech, said she was "humbled to be given the opportunity to serve the people in Chester North and Neston, and I will do so tirelessly. The work begins now."

Mr Madders, for his acceptance speech, said: “I think integrity in politics is vital as one of the many important ingredients of the next four years because if we cannot rebuild people’s faith in democratic process then we cannot ever become a healed nation.

“We have too much division in the country at the moment and that has to change.”

Mr Amesbury, in his speech, said: "I'm very proud to have been elected as the first ever MP for the new constituency of Runcorn and Helsby. Together, working with all those of have put their trust in me, and actually those that didn't vote for me either, we can help to regenerate our community."

Labour had been predicted, in opinion polls taken during the run-up to the General Election, to deliver a landslide with about 40 per cent of the vote.

However, the polls having slightly overestimated Labour's lead over the Conservatives meant the Tories were able to keep hold of what was Eddisbury and is now the reshaped Chester South and Eddisbury seat.

Aphra Brandreth won a 3,057-vote majority for the seat over Labour's Angeliki Stogia. Writing on social media, Ms Brandreth – daughter of former City of Chester MP Gyles – said: "So grateful to be elected to serve as the Member of Parliament for Chester South and Eddisbury. A very special place for me and my family, I am humbled and honoured to serve."
