David Cameron may be back in 10 Downing Street today but things weren’t so straight forward for the Conservatives in London.
On London’s 73 seats, Labour won seven more than in 2010 with a total of 45.
The Tories lost six to end up with 27, while the Lib Dems national capitulation was echoed in the capital as they lost some big hitters to wind up with just one MP, Tom Brake in Carshalton and Wallington.
These are the ten biggest results and surprises from overnight:
This Is Local London: London Mayor Boris Johnson pledges backing for Croydon 3rd city bid if Tories win election
It’s not so much a surprise, but Boris Johnson is back Parliament. The Conservative London Mayor took 50 per cent of the vote to take victory in the Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency. Bro-Jo won in Orpington too.
This Is Local London: Vince Cable was in Southampton to open a new 7.5m car terminal at the port
At one stage in 2010, people thought Vince Cable would make a good chancellor. He’s been an MP since 1997 and was Business Secretary in the last Government but no more.
The people of Twickenham have voted in Tory Tania Mathias. The GP took 41 per cent of the vote to Cable’s 38 per cent.
This Is Local London: Kingston and Surbiton MP Ed Davey
Lib Dems lost their Ed
Miliband wasn’t the only Ed having a miserable night. Thanks to his result being one of the early ones, Ed Davey became the first cabinet member to lose his seat since 1997. His 7,560 vote majority in Kingston and Surbiton from 2010 vanished as Tory James Berry triumphed by 2,800.
This Is Local London: Natalie Bennett
Oh no, Natalie
While Caroline Lucas triumphed down in Sussex, Green party leader Natalie Bennett stood in Holborn and St Pancras – and got humbled.
Former Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer romped to victory for Labour with 53 per cent of the vote. Bennett limped into third with 13 per cent.
Sutton News Blog – Most marginal?
In the last election, Hampstead and Kilburn was the second tightest seat with just 42 votes carrying retiring MP Glenda Jackson to victory for Labour. The party extended their lead with Tulip Siddiq beating Conservative rival Simon Marcus by just over 1,000 votes.
This Is Local London: Liberal Democrat Simon Hughes
32 years and out
After more than three decades as an MP, former Liberal Democrat deputy leader Simon Hughes has lost his seat. He lost in Bermondsey and Old Southwark by 4,489 votes to Labour’s Neil Coyle.
This Is Local London: Not ruffled: Lynne Featherstone MP said she was flattered by Richard Merril’s attack
In the London election results another Liberal Democrat big hitter to lose her seat was Lynne Featherstone on Hornsey and Wood Green. Catherine West, Labour, won 29,417 votes (51 per cent) to Featherstone’s 18,359 (32 per cent).
This Is Local London: Worried: Deputy leader of Hounslow’s Labour group, Ruth Cadbury
Sweet victory for Cadbury
Labour didn’t claim too many seats from the Tories in the London election results but one place they did was in Brentford and Isleworth.
Ruth Cadbury took advantage of a collapse in the Lib Dem vote to take a victory over the sitting Tory MP, Mary Macleod by just 465 votes.
Labour’s share in the constituency grew by nearly 7,000 votes while Mcleod for the Conservatives also took more than 4,000 extra votes than in 2010. This was due to the Lib Dems shedding a massive 10,500 votes.
Tight night in Ealing Central and Acton – London election results
It was a tense night at the Ealing Central and Acton count, with Labour taking a very narrow victory to steal the seat from the Conservatives.
Sociology lecturer Rupa Huq, who is also the older sister of former Blue Peter presenter Konnie, scored an upset with a win by 274 votes over incumbent Angie Bray.
This Is Local London: Chuka Umunna humbled by Streatham victory
Poised to lead?
We don’t yet know what’s going to happen with the Labour leadership, but Chuka Umunna may well be a front runner if there is a race given his performance in the London election results.
Unlike shadow chancellor Ed Balls, Umunna is well positioned having won his seat in Streatham with 53 per cent of the vote.
A fire fighter has returned to the UK after volunteering to help the search and rescue effort in Nepal.
Mark Gatfield, 41, of Mill Lane, Carshalton, who works for the Surrey Fire and Rescue service, left for Nepal on May 2, with Serve On to aid with the humanitarian effort in the country.
Serve On is a non-profit group that, among other duties, acts as emergency responders to natural disasters.
Working in the outlying villages and small towns around the country’s capital Kathmandu to search for survivors following the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck on April 25.
He said: “It was all a bit surreal really.
“Many of the houses were ruined with families inside, trapped under the rubble. In some cases our dogs were able to find survivors, but in a lot of cases there was nothing that we could do.”
He added: “It was life as normal for a lot of people.
“You would see a building completely collapsed, but next door a shop would be open and selling goods for the survivors.
“Even those who had lost family and friends were calm in the face of it. Of course they wanted the bodies of those they cared about to be returned to them, but it was so they could send their spirits on.
“It isn’t a criticism, but shows a different outlook on life and how important it is that they hold onto their religious beliefs in difficult times.
“It was all very humbling.”
“I really want to thank the Surrey Fire and Rescue service for letting me go out there and do my part for those people.”
Mr Gatfield worked out in Nepal for a week trying to help the thousands hit by the earthquake
After news of the second earthquake that hit Nepal Mr Gatfield said that he was keeping an eye on the situation, but that he had not received any request to return to the country.
Mr Gatfield said: “We’ve been in close contact with the Gurkha forces over there, but they still have a lot of supplies from the last earthquake.
“But I’m still keeping a look out for what is happening over there, so far though we have had no request to deploy to Nepal.”
Top consultancy firm A top management consultancy firm which said it was “deeply regrettable” that its employees had leaked confidential plans being discussed on building an 800-bed super hospital to replace Epsom and St Helier has refused to reveal whether they faced any consequences.
Consultants from Deloitte shocked health campaigners, politicians and patients last month when it emerged they had held a conference call on the proposals on a commuter train, after a meeting with hospital trust chief executive Daniel Elkeles.
Less than three weeks before, Mr Elkeles told this newspaper that accident and emergency, maternity and children’s services would all be safe on both sites for the next five years and “people don’t have to worry about putting out the placards”.
The Deloitte consultants are on the payroll of the trust as part of its “full estates review”, through which it is considering options for the sustainability of both hospitals post-2020.
Campaigners protesting outside Epsom Hospital last month after the Deloitte leak
The review is being funded by the trust and Sutton and Surrey Downs Clinical Commissioning Groups.
As news of the leak broke last month, Mark Smith, public relations and public affairs manager for Deloitte, said: “We have clear and strict policies, along with mandatory annual training for all staff, emphasising the importance of client confidentiality.
“This is a deeply regrettable incident and we are actively investigating the matter.”
But asked on Thursday what had come of the investigation and whether any action had been taken against the employees involved, Mr Smith said that because it was an “internal matter”, the company would not be commenting.
Deloitte is the largest provider of professional services in the world and provides consulting, tax, audit, financial advisory services and more.
It is known as one of the ‘Big Four’ professional services firms alongside PwC, EY and KPMG.
Twenty extra night buses are set to be introduced when all-night Tube services begin in September.
Transport for London (TFL) has launched a consultation on the proposal, which would see 17 of the new services would run throughout Friday and Saturday nights, with three running seven nights a week.
The aim is to enable night Tube travellers further options.
All of these new services would follow the same route and run between the same points as the day service.
However, 17 night bus services currently in place could be scrapped, as it is anticipated that some passengers will choose to use the Tube instead.
Mike Weston, TfL’s Director of Buses, said: “London’s night buses carry more than 42 million passengers every year and demand has tripled since 1999, reflecting London’s development as an increasingly 24-hour city.
‘The introduction of the Night Tube will see journey times for customers cut by an average of 20 minutes, with some reduced by more than an hour. At the same time, night buses will continue to run frequently across London complementing Night Tube services, giving passengers more choice.”
Concern has been raised by members of the London Assembly that night buses could be preferable to passengers as they may travel closer to homes.
Labour’s Andy Burnham has said he would keep St Helier on its current site if he becomes health secretary after the general election
First published in News Sutton Guardian:
by Hardeep Matharu, Chief reporter – Epsom
Andy Burnham has said St Helier hospital “now needs security” and would stay open on its existing site if he is health secretary after the general election.
The Labour politician’s comments come two weeks after secret plans to close both Epsom and St Helier hospitals and replace them with an 800-bed super site in Sutton were leaked.
From April 14: Secret plans to close Epsom and St Helier and build new “super hospital” overheard on train
He made no comment on Epsom Hospital, raising questions about whether he believes Epsom should be closed.
In a statement, Mr Burnham, who would be health secretary if a Labour government is formed after the May 7 election, said: “I am really concerned to find out that there is yet another consultation being conducted on the future of St Helier hospital.”
“There have already been endless consultations costing the NHS millions of pounds, money which would have been better spent on patient care.
“All of these consultations have reached exactly the same answer – that St Helier should stay open on its current site.
“In the interests of patients, staff and the local community St Helier Hospital now needs security.
“If I am Secretary of State for Health after the election I will veto such plans and require the funds, already allocated for the upgrading of the hospital, to be spent”.
A pensioner died after his wife accidentally reversed her car into him as he stepped out of the vehicle, an inquest has heard.
John Tulley, 83, was getting out of the car outside Manor Drive Medical Centre in Manor Drive, Worcester Park, for a routine appointment on February 14 last year, when he was crushed between a parked car and the car he had exited.
Feb 18 2014: Pensioner who died ‘after falling out of ‘slow-moving vehicle’ named as John Tulley, 83
In a statement read to an inquest at West London Coroner’s Court on Monday, April 20, witness Nick Stokell said he was turning into Manor Drive when he heard a “loud noise” and noticed a man who may have been stepping out of a car.
He said: “The impression I had then was a car [was] moving and it reversed very fast.
“As I got to the blue [parked] car, I realised it was locked and I saw an elderly man lying on the floor.
“He was unconscious and was not moving.”
Paramedics from London Ambulance Service were called, but Mr Tulley, who lived in nearby Idmiston Square, near Plough Green and Manor Park, Old Malden, was pronounced dead at the scene.
A month earlier, Mr Tulley had fallen out of his bed and injured his arm and was visiting the doctor’s surgery twice a week to have the dressings on his wound changed.
Reading from a collision investigation report, coroner Chinyere Inyama said: “Doris Tulley [his wife] was driving John Tulley to a doctor’s appointment.
“It is not clear how the accident occurred but what was clear was John Tulley was getting out the car when Mrs Tulley started to reverse at speed.
“Nothing suggests why Mrs Tulley reversed but she failed to observe her husband.”
Mr Inyama recorded a verdict of accidental death.
Great British aquatic athletes joined celebrations over the completion of a £3.3m leisure centre refurbishment.
Commonwealth gold medal winning swimmer Adam Whitehead, water polo captain Fran Leighton and synchronised swimmer Adele Carlsen were alongside more than 1,000 visitors to Cheam leisure centre on Saturday taking part in inflatable fun activities in the pool group exercise classes and taster sessions.
The centre, owned by Sutton Council but run by contractors Everyone Active, has undergone essential repairs, particularly to the pool roof.
Mark Basker, the contract manager for Everyone Active, said: “The budget for the recent works was set by the local authority – this was for essential repairs to the pool roof, without which the centre would have had to have been closed permanently.
No spend was assigned to the fitness suite during this stage of refurbishment, however, £650k was spent on upgrading fitness equipment, changing rooms and the reception area in 2011 and 2012.”
The disruption caused while the work has been taking place has come in for some criticism.
David Ford wrote to the Sutton Guardian: “I have been a member at Cheam leisure for a considerable time and while the funding to upgrade the site was welcomed, the misery endured through inept planning and consideration for members has been truly woeful.
“Some three plus millions have been spent and yet the only facilities to remain open during nine months (originally six) were the gym and exercise classes.”
Mr Ford also complained temporary changing rooms were at first not supplied, and then removed a week before the new facilities were available to use.
Mr Basker confirmed temporary changing rooms were only provided two weeks after works began, and again were removed early, but explained this was as early as possible to fit in with the building contractors needs, and customers were fully briefed on the arrangements.
The Malden Road centre is now fully open again to the public.
Costcutter store in Vale Road, Worcester Park

Robbers in balaclavas forced a delivery truck driver to hand over boxes of cigarette packets near a Costcutter yesterday.
The two men went up to the driver and demanded the cigarettes near the convenience store in Vale Road, Worcester Park, at about 7.15am.
The thieves took the cigarettes and quickly drove off in a grey Audi getaway car in the direction of Cuddington Avenue.
Detective Constable Errol Chetty said: “Although no weapons were seen or violence threatened, the fact these men had prepared themselves with balaclavas suggested they wanted to cause fear to the driver and they must be caught.
“I believe there were several people in the area around the time the offence was committed who have not yet spoken with police.
“Potential witnesses may not have realised what was happening at the time but any information they can provide could be useful the investigation and therefore I would urge them to get in touch.”
As part of their investigation detectives are searching for the driver of a grey Audi which left the M25 at junction 6 at about 7.30am yesterday.
The car was seen using the hard shoulder in the anticlockwise direction before mounting the grass verge at the traffic lights and turning towards either Godstone or Lingfield.
DC Chetty said: “I would appeal to the driver of this vehicle to come forward.
“At this stage in the investigation we do not know if this car links to the robbery but we need to speak to the occupants of the vehicle.
“I would also like to ask anyone who believes they may have seen this car to contact Surrey Police as your information could prove vital to our investigation.”
Anyone with information should call Surrey Police, quoting reference 45150030966. Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
A mother duck crossing the road with her ducklings was mowed down yesterday to the horror of a school community.
School caretakers stood in the road to help the mother duck cross, but the motorist “zoomed around them” and killed the duck, which had been nesting at Ewell Castle School in Ewell Village.
The two men had been carrying the duckings across Spring Street in a cardboard box and took them to the Wildlife Aid Foundation (WAF) Hospital in Leatherhead.
Michelle Phillips, headteacher, said: “We had a dreadful situation involving the mother duck that had been nesting on our Chessington Lodge site opposite Bourne Hall.
“She was well-known and loved by staff and children alike.”
The headteacher said the caretaking team stood in the road to protect mother as she went across the busy road to the pond in Bourne Hall.
She said: “When suddenly this driver zoomed around them, rather than waiting and killed her. The whole school community were very upset as you can imagine.”
She added: “The plan is for us to fundraise for the animal hospital in gratitude for their help and all the work they do.
“It would be good to shame whoever is responsible for this selfish and cruel act.”
Graham Tapp, who was helping the ducks to cross with his boss Steve Miller, said the hit-and-run driver swerved round them and killed the mother duck.
Madhurittu Puri, who works in the school’s nursery, said the father and mother ducks, known as Mr and Mrs Mallard, have been seen at the school for about eight years.
Mrs Puri said: “Every year the mother duck walks her ducklings across the road when they are going to learn swimming.
“I’m quite upset about it because they have been part of our school for quite a long time. I’m upset because the ducklings lost their mum but the people at Wildlife Aid were lovely.”
Simon Cowell, founder of the WAF, said: “It’s tragic. At this time of year in particular everybody needs to take a care because everything is nesting.
“When you see something going on in the road you should stop and wait rather than drive straight on and kill a mother duck.”
Mr Cowell said they will take care of her ducklings until they are ready to be released back into the wild and welcomed the fundraising by the school.
He said: “Fantastic. That’s really kind. We get an awful lot of money from people who help us and it’s often children.”
Ewell resident Paul Warner said: “It’s sad when something like this happens. I think motorists should take a bit more care because there are a lot of ducks in the area.
“I know people can be in a bit of a rush but they should take more care.”

The group, comprising of Nic Austin, Lee Morrell, Lee (Diary) Page and Simon Godfrey, are Sutton through-and-through and through word of mouth and local performances have gathered a strong following.
Austin (vocals, guitar) and Morrell (drums) were both previously part of the punk band Chelsea before establishing their own band and now the alternative rock and punk group is preparing to launch its debut album All Our Tomorrows.
The Church of Eon production team is managed by Gary Milsom, a tenant at the Charles Cryer Studio Theatre, Carshalton, where he works alongside major music projects around the borough giving people of Sutton the opportunity to perform and perfect their talents.
In addition, Church of Eon filmed both their music videos in Sutton in support of the local area.
The first video Died and Gone to Heaven was filmed at the 360-degree projection room at the Sutton Life Centre and Happy was filmed in Sutton High Street.
Godfrey (keyboards) says: “Drawing from the most energetic and powerful moments in rock ’n’ roll history the band offers a new take on alternative rock.
“We know that the theatre has been on the brink of closing, and totally believe that the Charles Cryer Studio Theatre is a great venue for music and arts and we would like to make people aware of the potential by using the venue for our album launch.”
The official album launch, Church of Eon: All Our Tomorrows will be supported by local bands on the night; Change Persona and Incendium UK.
Church of Eon has also lined up a number of performances at festivals later this year including: Phoenix Festival, Phoenix Club, High Wycombe, on July 4 and Undercover Winter Warmer Festival, Bisley, on November 21.
This year marks the centenary of the start of the Gallipoli campaign
UK police are reviewing security plans for Anzac Day events after Australian authorities said they foiled a terror plot to attack an event in Melbourne.
Five teenagers were arrested over plans to target police at the memorial event next week, Australian police said.
Anzac Day honours Australian and New Zealand soldiers who have died in war.
Australians and New Zealanders in the UK traditionally observe the occasion, which takes place on 25 April each year, by holding services in Westminster and Hyde Park in central London.
Met Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said: “Following counter-terrorism arrests in Australia this weekend and allegations of attack planning against Anzac Day commemorations and police officers in Australia, we are reviewing security plans at related events in the UK.
“We already have protective security plans in place for major Anzac events in the UK but as a sensible precaution all forces have been asked to review security arrangements at related events to ensure they are safe and secure for the public and officers.
“While there is no information to suggest a specific threat to related events in the UK – and the current UK threat level remains unchanged – the public should remain vigilant.”
The current UK threat level for international terrorism, set by the government, is “severe” – meaning an attack is “highly likely”.
Anzac Day was established to mark the anniversary of the start of the Gallipoli campaign in World War One, and this year marks 100 years since that day.

A red Ferrari crashed in Ewell this morning to the shock of office workers and shoppers.
The expensive convertible is believed to have hit a lamppost and one of its wheels flew off in Kingston Road near the junction with Ruxley Lane.
Stuart Tree, who works at Skyguard in Kingston Road, said he went outside after the crash had happened and saw the damaged Ferrari at about 11am.
Mr Tree said: “He’s hit a lamppost and obviously the back of the car is smashed and one of the wheels has come off.”
Paramedics and police officers attended the scene, and he said: “As you would imagine there was quite a gathering with people coming out of cafes and shops.
“It caused a bit of a stir in the office because it’s not every day you see a Ferrari crash.”
A police spokesman said: “Surrey Police was called to Kingston Road, Ewell at 11.17am today following reports of a single vehicle collision involving a Ferrari.
“The road was re-opened at 12.52pm and no persons were injured.”
The restaurant and other vessels were moored at a pontoon.
The Boat restaurant and other vessels started to take on water as the pontoon in Richmond dragged them down.
Lifeboat crews were called at about 01:00 BST on Friday. They made the area safe and no-one was injured.
The fire brigade also attended because there were fears The Boat might have gas canisters inside.
Teddington RNLI crew member James Kavanagh, said: ‘It was mayhem.
Teddington RNLI crews attended the scene
Lifeboat crews salvaged boats and recovered debris
“The river was littered with floating debris and owners of the rowing boats tethered to the pontoon were frantically trying to salvage as much as they could.
“The pontoon had failed and any vessel moored with decent rope was quickly being dragged under.
“As the tide rose, the stern of The Boat restaurant became fully submerged.”
RNLI crews stayed in the area until 04:30 BST returning any floating debris to the riverside and salvaging the boats.
Paul Monk and Jayson McDonald are suspected of drug trafficking
Two suspected drug traffickers, who featured on the UK’s most wanted list of fugitives, have been captured within 24 hours of each other.
Jayson McDonald, aged 37, from Acton, west London, was found hiding under a bed in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Paul Monk, 54, from Romford, east London, was later captured at his luxury villa in Alicante, Spain.
They were arrested as part of Operation Captura, an international drive to catch suspects who have fled the UK.
In March, both men were included on a list of the operation’s top ten most wanted suspects.
They are wanted by the Metropolitan Police on suspicion of drug offences and are currently in custody awaiting extradition proceedings.
Mr Monk was overseeing workmen laying a marble patio around his Spanish swimming pool when armed police swooped.
An imitation firearm with silencer and 125,000 euros were recovered from the address.
On Wednesday morning, Mr McDonald was apprehended as part of a separate joint investigation with the Dutch National Police.
He is wanted on suspicion of conspiracies to import and supply heroin and cocaine, and is believed to be a member of a Europe-wide organised crime network responsible for the importation of Class A drugs into the UK.
Mr Monk is wanted on suspicion of conspiracy to supply cocaine and conspiracy to supply cannabis.
Most wanted by the NCA
Police want to speak to (clockwise from top left): Mohammed Jahangir Alam, Anthony Dennis, Scott Hughes, David McDermott, Jayson McDonald, Paul Monk, Michael Roden, Shane Walford, Paul Buchanan and Carlo Dawson
A total of 68 out of 86 fugitives have now been caught under Operation Captura.
The operation was launched in 2006 and involves officers from the National Crime Agency, Crimestoppers and Spanish authorities.
In March, its most wanted list also included ex-soldier Shane Walford who was jailed in 2010 for the manslaughter of an off-duty fireman while on leave from the army.
Mohammed Jahangir Alam, 32, who was sentenced to 14 years in his absence in March 2010 for rape and sexual assault, was also featured.

Children in encourage caring are rehearsing songs from a cinema as they aim to win a inhabitant singing competition.
The children are partial of a choir put together by London and Kent’s Foster Care Associates (FCA), formed in Mulgrave Road, Sutton and will be holding partial in The Big Sing Off during Chateau Impney in Worcestershire on after today.
The choir, called Lo-Ke, have been practicing High School Musical’s We’re All In This Together and Toy Story’s You’ve Got a Friend in Me each week during a FCA’s Sutton office.
Choir co-ordinator and Office Manager for FCA London and Kent, Geraldine Turner, said: “Rehearsals have been going good and are solemnly building as we get closer to a large day.
“The many critical thing is that it has been a unequivocally certain knowledge for a immature people, carers and staff and there has been a good suggestion within a choir.”
They will be competing opposite 14 FCA choirs from opposite a UK in front of a row of judges including Adam Treadaway, partner conductor with The National Youth Choirs of Great Britain.
The FCA aims to assistance children find a fast home if their relatives are incompetent to demeanour after them.
Support Worker Sukpal Uppal, 26, said: “It could be a series of reasons. It could be due to slight or abuse. If a immature chairman has specific needs we try to compare them.”
He feels a children have benefitted from holding partial in a choir and removing a possibility to showcase their talents.
Mr Uppal said: “They are vehement for a Toy Story series as we are carrying costumes.”

The fire is reported to have ripped through the roof and first floor of a family home while a father was taking his child to school.
Residents were evacuated from their homes as a precaution and the blaze has now been brought under control.
Four fire engines and 21 firefighters were called to Trenchard Court just off Green Lane in Morden at 8.32am.
The London Fire Brigade said the fire affected a semi-detached house of two floors.
“Half of the first floor and the whole of the roof was damaged in the blaze. “Firefighters will remain at the scene damping down remaining hotspots.
“Fortunately no-one was injured,” a spokeswoman said.
Police were called at 8.46am this morning to reports of a fire.
Residents of the road were evacuated as a precaution, a police spokeswoman said.
Patrick Mensah, 40, who lives on the estate, said: “We parked our car and saw the firemen coming in. I was shocked. We all live on the estate and seeing that fire it ached my heart.”
He said a family lives in the semi-detached house and he understands the father discovered the fire after returning from dropping his child off at school.
The private estate is run by Haig Housing Trust, which runs affordable housing to let to ex-service personnel and their families in ‘housing need.’
A member of staff at the trust said this morning nobody was hurt in the fire.
A witness said earlier this morning: “I can see thick black smoke, with flames, that appears to be coming out of a first-floor window.
“There’s thick black smoke going high into the sky.”
Firefighters from Purley, Wimbledon, Mitcham and Sutton fire stations attended the incident.
It was brought under control at 9.50am and the cause is under investigation.

Primary school places have been announced and roughly 96 in every 100 children got a preferred place, Sutton council has announced.
Across the borough there were 2,667 youngsters going through the process with 2,243 getting into a first choice school, approximately 84 per cent. This compares favourably with the London average of about 81 per cent.
Of those who were not allocated a preferred choice, only three are still yet to be found a school, a council spokesman said.
Colin Stewart, executive head of education and early intervention, said: “We have worked hard with our primary schools so once again the majority Sutton’s children get an offer of a school place.
“We are confident that Sutton’s performance on helping parents secure one of their preferences compares very favourably with the position across the country.”
Of those remaining, 7.7 per cent achieved their second choice and 2.7 per cent got their third choice allocation ahead of the children’s’ September start.
Sutton council said that Department for Education ranked the borough’s primary schools joint second in the country, with an average of 87 per cent of pupils achieving level 4 reading, writing and maths combined.
