David Cameron favourite Joanne Cash launched an astonishing attack on the media after failing in her bid to oust Karen Buck in Westminster North.

She said the Westminster North media had played an 'incredibly powerful role' in the outcome of the election.

Early in the campaign the Wood&Vale gained access to a Conservative selection meeting and our exclusive reports on the controversy surrounding her selection were picked up by national news and broadcast meeting.

After her defeat by more than 2,000 votes, Ms Cash said: "This is a very strange night up and down the country, there are very strange results everywhere. But the Westminster North media played an incredibly powerful role, and we have to face the question about what their role will be going forward. Are they going to tell the truth or are they going to trash people, lie about their families. And hello to my family who are watching

"This probably is the only chance I will get to put the record straight and it's not conventional to do so at a time like this but I want to do. Whatever the result through the rest of country, the rest of night, the Conservatives have a vision for this country and I hope we can find a way to implement that.''

Ms Cash particularly referred to what she described as 'lies' about her husband Octavious, a close friend of David Cameron's.
