In a close fought election battle, Ian Murray has successfully defended Labour's Edinburgh South seat.

Ian's majority of 316 over Liberal Democrat Fred Mackintosh, left Conservative's Neil Hudson in third place. 

Nigel Griffiths, who stood down after 23 years as MP for this area, has been active in supporting Ian's campaign to be his successor at Westminster.
