Bristol East: A key seat and a bitter campaign

Bristol East was a key seat in the struggle between Labour and the Conservatives in this election.

It's been held by Labour since 1992. It was once the seat of the stalwart Tony Benn.

Incumbent Kerry McCarthy has won the seat again. She has been a vocal critic of Jeremy Corbyn, but admitted this week she has been impressed by his campaign

The Conservatives have thrown everything they've got at it – including a visit by Theresa May.

The Tory candidate Theodora Clarke is niece of the current MP for North East Somerset Jacob Rees-Mogg. He is standing there again but has also been campaigning for her.

The campaign has been bitter with left-wing activists protesting during Theresa May’s visit and a row over where Theodora Clarke lives.
