Labor wins Redcliffe by-election with enourmous swing

NEW Redcliffe MP Yvette D'Ath says voters were far more angry with Queensland Premier Campbell Newman than with disgraced former MP Scott Driscoll, as she claimed victory in the by-election for the Queensland seat.

LNP candidate Kerri-Anne Dooley has conceded defeat in the Redcliffe by-election, north of Brisbane.

ABC election analyst Antony Green said Ms D'Ath "easily" won the by-election about 7:20pm (AEST).

He says that with more than 56 per cent of ballots counted, the projected two-party preferred swing is more than 16 per cent.

Ms Dooley says she has called Ms D'Ath to congratulate her on Labor's win.
