Some of the southern parts of the current Rushcliffe constituency would combine with Loughborough, to create a new Loughborough and South Rushcliffe seat.

Further south, some of the current South Leicestershire seat would become part of a new Daventry and Lutterworth constituency.

In Derbyshire and Derby, a new North East Derbyshire constituency will be created that is in line with its local authority of the same name, and there will be a Bolsover constituency containing the entirety of Bolsover District.

There are no proposed changes to the Bassetlaw, High Peak, Leicester East, Leicester South, North West Leicestershire and Mansfield seats - but all the rest face some minor tweaks which you can see here.

"The government may say there is record spending, but when our excellent schools in High Peak are about to lose £4m a doesn’t cut much ice to say we could have lots of money for a free school if we want one."

The Department for Education (DfE) said in March it was trying to end what it refers to as an "historic postcode lottery in funding."
