McIntosh elected in Thirsk
Former Euro MP resumes Commons career
ANNE McIntosh, the former Euro MP for Essex North & Suffolk South, has been safely returned to the House of Commons, three weeks after the General Election.
Voting in the Thirsk & Malton constituency was delayed after the death of the UKIP candidate. The new constituency was created by boundary changes and Ms McIntosh became Tory candidate after her Vale of York seat was abolished.
Ms McIntosh was MEP for Essex North-East from 1989-94 and Essex North & Suffolk South from 1994 to 1999.
Thirsk & Malton is a huge rural constituency, stretching from outside Harrogate in the west to the North Sea, covers part of the North York Moors and then follows the Yorkshire Wolds east to the coastal town of Filey.
