The left winger had every reason to celebrate.

Clive Lewis has won plaudits on social media for his enthusiastic response to hearing the verdict in his Norwich South constituency.

The Labour politician burst into life when it became clear that he had more than doubled his majority.

Lewis  - who is tipped by some as a future Labour leader - won the seat with a whopping 31,311 votes. In the 2015 general election he had only picked up 19,033 votes.

Lewis’s Labour predecessor Charles Clarke stood four times in Norwich South and never picked up more than 30,000 votes. In 1997, when Labour won by a landslide, Clarke took 26,267 votes.

All of which perhaps explains why Lewis did not hold back on the celebrations…
