The three losses are based on a uniform swing across Britain but the swing is expected to vary dramatically, with the pollsters expecting further Conservative gains in Wales, in contrast to Tory losses in Scotland and London. That means another six Welsh Labour seats also look vulnerable:

  • Cardiff North
  • Delyn
  • Bridgend
  • Clwyd Souith
  • Alyn & Deeside
  • Newport West

Polling expert Prof Roger Awan-Scully expects significant Labour losses in Wales on the basis of the exit poll.
