Speaking after the result she said that the victory was down to the hard work of her team and 'working on the day-to-day issues that people really care about'. She also highlighted the importance of the drop in unemployment in the constituency in convincing more people to support her.

This afternoon Ms Greening told PutneySW15:
“It’s been the greatest privilege of my life to represent the people of Putney, Roehampton and Southfields for the past 10 years so to be re-elected with more votes and a bigger majority is truly humbling. I will continue to work hard and to do my best for our local community. In the meantime, to all those people who got in touch with me or stopped me in the street to wish me well - your encouragement and support meant a great deal.”

Sheila Boswell increased Labour votes by 2.59% whereas the largest drop was the Liberal Democarats - last election they received 16.9% of the votes, whereas this year it was only 6.35% with 2,717 votes.

The turnout of 66.3% was an increase of 1.9%.

Putney was the first London result to be announced - with all three results within the borough of Wandsworth being the first three results declared in the capital.
