Springborg confident at campaign halfway mark, says the campaign is on course to make’significant gains’ in June’s general election

The Liberal Democrats’ election hopes have been damaged further by disappointing results in some London constituencies – the Lib Dem MP, Sir Vince Cable, suffered a stunning defeat in Richmond Park.

The result puts the party at roughly 7.5 percentage points behind its nearest rival.

Sir Vince Cable had taken on the shadow work and pensions secretary at last year’s election and the loss of the constituency was an unexpected blow to the Lib Dems.

It was also a setback for the party’s election strategy, as well as a blow for Ed Miliband, who has claimed victory for the first time.

David Cameron also lost his seat of Hastings, Essex, which he had led for years in May.

Lib Dems leader Tim Farron described his party’s worst defeat in an interview with Sky’s Andrew Marr.

The Lib Dems, who have been battered since the general election for failing to hold enough seats and are in the process of losing some local bodies, have also made huge gains in the north of England, where Ed Miliband and Ed Balls will campaign.

The Liberal Democrats had seen their share of local authority seats double since 2011, with the last local council in East Anglia – which includes the East Midlands – falling from 24 to 25 Labour-held council seats last time.

One candidate who lost his seat in Essex, Mark Haddon, said his party would hold a ‘throwing match’ with the Lib Dems this year and that the party’s election chances were ‘unlikely’.
