Mr Timms recorded a 5.6pc improvement on his 2015 result while Ms Brown’s share of the vote rose by 8.3pc.

But the Labour duo cannot claim the biggest majority in the country - that honour goes to the Labour candidate in Liverpool Walton, Dan Carden, who polled 85.7pc of his constituency’s vote.

The Conservatives made gains in both the Newham constituencies, while it was a split result for the Liberal Democrats.

West Ham candidate Paul Reynolds improved on his 2015 result but the party’s share was down in East Ham.
