Latest updates Brentford & Isleworth
Labour gain seat
Labour's Ruth Cadbury has won her Brentford and Isleworth seat ousting the Conservative's.
Stretching along the north bank of the Thames is the seat of Brentford and Isleworth. The A4 "Golden Mile" runs through the constituency and is home to a number of multi-nationals including: BSkyB, Cable and Wireless, GlaxoSmithKline and the flagship Audi Centre. Unsurprisingly, one in 10 of the population works in the information and communications sector - the eighth highest of all the constituencies in England and Wales, according to ONS 2011 Census figures.
Professional, scientific and technical activities also account for a high number of jobs. At 42.8%, it has one of the higher proportions of people with a degree level qualification. The seat is diverse - over a quarter of the population is Asian/Asian British, with a high proportion of Muslims and Sikhs.
In 2010, Conservative Mary MacLeod took the seat from Labour with 37.2% of the votes; Labour got 33.6%, Liberal Democrats got 23.7% and UKIP got 1.6%.
