Labour have regained Bethnal Green and Bow, the seat won by Respect's George Galloway from Jewish MP Oona King in a bitter 2005 campaign.

With Mr Galloway fighting a losing battle in Poplar, Respect support plummeted by 20 per cent in Bethnal Green, where their candidate Abjol Miah lost to Labour's Rushanara Ali with a 14.1 per cent swing.
