The seat replaces the former Leeds North West seat and incorporates Adel and Wharfedale, Otley and Yeadon, Guiseley, Rawdon and Horsforth.

Speaking after the win she said: “I promise I will work hard for you. Let’s begin to change this country for the better.”

And taking to social media she thanked the people of Leeds North West adding: "I promise to repay that faith. I promise I will work hard for you. I promise to fight for change. Because I believe in change."

Labour’s Rachel Reeves looks set to become the country’s first female chancellor of the exchequer after winning in Leeds West and Pudsey.

Ms Reeves took 18,976 votes in the constituency, beating second place Tory Lee Farmer who got 6,584.

Ms Reeves said: “You have put your trust in me and I will not let you down.

“We have promised to end the chaos, to turn the page and get to work rebuilding our country.”
