After a hard-fought battle with Labour’s Andrew Pakes (18,829 votes), Mr Stewart said he was humbled and surprised by the result.

He said: “It has been a long, long day. I’m exhilarated but also humbled. I hoped I’d win by I never in my wildest dreams imagined that my vote would go up the way it has.

“I think our message on keeping on the economic path we’re on resonated with people. People are concerned with the Scottish Nationalists in an unstable government too. That moved a lot of people into our column in the last few days.”
