Thirsk and Malton election result reaction

Mike Smithson from the website Political and journalists Ann Leslie and Kevin Maguire discuss the result of the Thirsk and Malton election.

The Conservatives won the seat with the Liberal Democrats second, and Labour third.

The vote was delayed following the death last month of UKIP candidate John Boakes - only the eighth candidate to die during an election campaign since 1918.
