PETERBOROUGH, England (Reuters) – Britain’s opposition Labour Party held on to the parliamentary seat of Peterborough in eastern England on Friday, seeing off a challenge from Nigel Farage’s insurgent Brexit Party.

The vote was triggered when the incumbent Labour lawmaker was ousted by her constituents in a recall petition. Labour candidate Lisa Forbes won with 10,484 votes.

The Brexit Party, who was the bookmakers’ favorite, came second with 9,801 votes while Prime Minister Theresa May’s governing Conservatives came third with 7,243 votes.
