General Election 2017 | Constituency profile: Brighton Pavilion

Now, all political constituencies are different, but Brighton Pavilion can rightly claim to be unique.

It's the only place in the country that has elected a Green Party MP - last time with a majority of almost 8,000.

There are 76,500 voters in the constituency. At the last election, two years' ago, the turnout was 71%.

In the Census, it says around 18% of the population there - almost 14,000 people - are aged between 18 and 24. Around 43% of them voted in 2015.

There are just under 8,000 voters over 65 - and 78% went to the polls!

The city itself, voted to remain in the EU Referendum.

Malcolm Shaw reports.

  • Ian Verdun Buchanan, UK Independence Party
  • Solomon Curtis, Labour
  • Caroline Lucas, Green
