Mark Simmonds, the Conservative candidate won 17 298 votes. Elaine Bird notched up 16 783.

Until the last election the seat was previously a safe Tory seat and was only narrowly held by Richard Body in 1997.

Having a former IBD in parliament would have been nice, especially in the aftermath of FMD.

Shame on the voters of Lincolnshire!
