Chloe Smith takes her seat in the Commons as MP for Norwich North

The Norwich North by-election was held back in July but since today was the first day that Parliament has sat since the poll, it was only this afternoon that victor Chloe Smith was able officially to take her seat in the Commons. She has just done so, flanked by colleagues Angela Browning and Sir Peter Tapsell, who - at 79 - is 52 years her senior. Sir Peter is the oldest Conservative MP and Chloe is not only the youngest Conservative MP but also the youngest MP in the entire House of Commons, an accolade she has wrested from Liberal Democrat Jo Swinson.
