Alberto said: “I am over the moon to win, and especially with such a large majority. It is an honour and a privilege to be a member of parliament.

“I will continue to do my best for the people of South Leicestershire.”

He went on to praise the team which helped him to victory once again, and said that Brexit was high on his priority list.

He added: “I’ve got an excellent team here in South Leicestershire. In fact, the whole of the Conservative party has been working really hard.
