General Election 2019: West Country Battlegrounds Cheltenham

Credit: ITV West Country

We have looked at five constituencies in the East of the region and five constituencies in the West of the region that will have the closest battles between the political parties.

Where are the West Country battlegrounds?

  • Bath
  • Camborne and Redruth
  • Cheltenham
  • North Devon
  • Plymouth Sutton and Devonport
  • South Swindon
  • St Ives
  • Stroud
  • Totnes
  • Wells

The Conservatives retained Cheltenham with a narrow win over the Liberal Democrats in the last election.

Cheltenham is the only seat in the West Country that the Conservatives held in 2017 but voted remain in the referendum the year before. This is why the Liberal Democrats are more confident here this time round.

Under a remain alliance, the Green Party will not stand to try to boost the Lib Dems chance of winning.

David Wood gives the latest update:
