Tory defector Mark Reckless has lost out to his former party, seeing UKIP taking a loss in the Rochester and Strood.
The UKIP candidate began his term in 2010 as a Conservative.
However in September 2014, he announced his defection to UKIP which triggered a by-election in which he won, enabling him to sit in the House of Commons as a UKIP member.
Reckless has been unable to hold on to his position, with the constituency turning to Tory’s Kelly Tolhurst.
