The 2024 Blackpool South by-election took place on 2 May 2024, the same day as local elections in England and Wales.


The by-election followed the resignation of incumbent MP Scott Benton, who had been suspended for 35 days from the House of Commons after being caught in a newspaper sting operation offering lobbying services for payment. This triggered a recall petition, which had started, but was then terminated by Benton's resignation.[1]

Turnout 32.5%
