Battleground Anglia: Fighting the election in Peterborough - one of the region's fastest growing cities

In the latest of our constituency reports from around the Anglia region we look at Peterborough, one of our fastest growing cities.

Peterborough has had a Conservative MP for a decade now but was Labour before that.

So the Tories are defending a majority of nearly 5,000 which would need a swing of more than 5% for Labour to win it back.

But the seat has seen some very close elections - the Conservative winning by just 3 votes in 1996.

Peterborough is also one of our most multi-cultural cities with challenging population pressures.
