Latest updates Stevenage
Not so marginal seats
Political reporter, BBC Three Counties Radio
Back on to the general election. In the end, the so-called marginal seats in Beds, Herts and Bucks turned out to be anything but.
In Stevenage, the night saw Stephen McPartland's Conservative majority increase to just shy of 5,000.
Milton Keynes South, another key marginal, also reflected the national trends, with Iain Stewart cementing his position by adding 3,471 votes, giving him a majority of 8,672.
Both had been major targets for Labour and had seen multiple visits by senior party figures.
Conservatives hold Stevenage.
Situated between London and Cambridge, this Hertfordshire constituency is centred on Britain's first post-war new town, as well as the surrounding villages of Knebworth, Datchworth, Codicote and Aston. Stevenage has good transport links and some big companies have bases here - including GlaxoSmithKline and missile manufacturers MBDA. It is also a centre for the UK space industry, Airbus Defence and Space employ over 1,000 people - many of them scientists and engineers working on projects like the European Space Agency's ExoMars rover.
According to the 2011 Census the seat has more children than average and fewer pensioners. A third of residents say they have no religion. Stevenage has a large social housing sector and more customer services and sales jobs than average for England and Wales.
Labour held the seat from 1997 but in 2010 Stephen McPartland won it back for the Conservatives with a majority of 3,578.
