Election Coverage: Leeds North West
In the run up to December's General Election, our election correspondent Joshua Sandiford will be creating profiles of key marginal constituencies around the country, combining the key statistics with interviews with the major candidates. This profile focuses on Leeds North West.
Leeds North West will be a key marginal in December's general election.
It has one of the highest student populations in the country and voted heavily to Remain in the EU referendum.
With a slim majority of just over 4,000 and a strong pro-remain base, the Liberal Democrats will be hoping they can wrestle this one back.
Statistics published in the YouGov MRP model, which correctly predicted the hung parliament in the 2017 election, have Alex Sobel, the sitting MP, on course for a sizeable victory.
Under their model, Sobel is predicted to win 49 per cent of the vote, with the Liberal Democrat candidate, Kamrain Hussain, predicted to come second with 24 per cent.
