Why did the Tories win the by-election in Copeland?

The main reasons the Conservatives had a surprise victory in the area which had been held by Labour since 1935, appear to be a rejection of the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn particularly since he has long opposed nuclear power - the constituency includes the Sellafield nuclear site.
