Labour MP Karen Buck has held Westminster North, incorporating St John’s Wood, in a nail-biting contest with Tory Joanne Cash.

During the campaign Ms Buck told the JC that she had always "championed" the causes of Jewish constituents.

Ms Cash, nicknamed a "Cameron cutie", criticised media coverage of her candidacy, which she claimed had "an incredibly powerful" impact on the result. In a recent Channel 4 Dispatches programme, her campaign was said to have received a large amount of money from Conservative Friends of Israel.
