UK PM Johnson's party loses previously safe parliamentary seat

LONDON, June 24 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party lost a previously safe parliamentary seat in southern England on Friday, a sign of the depth of voter discontent after months of scandals and a growing cost of living crisis.

The centrist Liberal Democrats party candidate, Richard Foord, won the Tiverton and Honiton seat by a majority of nearly 6,144 votes, overturning a Conservative majority of more than 24,000 won in 2019. (Reporting by Alistair Smout; Editing by Clarence Fernandez)
