Constituency profile

A picturesque constituency, Mid Worcestershire stretches from the edge of Kidderminster through the spa town of Droitwich, the market town of Evesham to Broadway, on the edge of the Cotswolds. The M5 allows many in Droitwich and Evesham to commute for work to the West Midlands, although both also have light industry.

Fruit growing, farming and distribution, as well as tourism, are important to the local economy. The Vale of Evesham is sometimes called the fruit basket of England. The bulk of households are families, with relatively low numbers of people living alone and few council homes. The population is largely white - a relatively high number of people describe themselves as Gypsies or Irish Travellers.

Peter Luff won the seat for the Conservatives in 2010 with 54.5% of the vote, the Lib Dems were second on 23.4%, Labour got 14.9% and UKIP got 6%.
