Is this the youngest person at a count tonight?

Amaia Stevens is just nine weeks old, and in the future will be able to say: "Remember that night at Batchwood Sports Centre when Anne Main tried to keep hold of her seat in St Albans? I was there."

Lucky girl.

Constituency profile

Taking its name from Britain's first Christian saint, who was executed here about 1700 years ago, St. Albans is a city which pre-dates the Romans. This Hertfordshire constituency is a popular commuter zone for London. It takes in St Albans plus some villages, including London Colney and Bricket Wood and is dissected by the M25 and the M1.

St Albans' historic streets and Cathedral draw visitors and the city is also a centre for business and shopping. Several national and international firms have offices here, including Pricewaterhouse Coopers and Deloitte, and unemployment is low.

Labour won here in 1997, taking the seat from the Conservatives and keeping it in 2001. But the Tories took it back in 2005, with the current MP Anne Main. In 2010, the Conservatives won with a majority of 2,300 and 41% of the vote. The Lib Dems came second with 36%, with Labour in third at 18%. Turnout was 75%.
