General Election 2019: West Country Battlegrounds Stroud

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

Stroud is the most marginal seat in the West Country and traditionally has been between Conservative and Labour.

Alongside South Swindon, Stroud is on the front line of helping to decide the main characters in parliament.

Labour won it from the Conservatives two years ago and for years it has been a battleground between the two.

However, with such a small majority and the Green Party targeting here as well as the Brexit Party standing, Stroud is becoming even harder to read.

David Wood gives the latest update:

We have been speaking to voters in Stroud and this is what they had to say:
