Now or never

If Plaid Cymru fails to win Aberconwy tonight it never will, the candidate's agent says.

Gwyn Williams says Trystan Lewis "is the right man in the right constituency at the right time" and worked hard to win support.

Constituency Profile

A north Wales constituency taking in a section of the coast and a sizeable rural hinterland.

Its biggest town is the seaside resort of Llandudno which is the birthplace of Wales's most-capped footballer Neville Southall. The magnificent Conwy castle was built for Edward I in the 13th century and is now one of the area's main tourist attractions. The over-65s make up 24.2% of the population, the second-highest proportion of any Welsh constituency. Following boundary changes the seat was won by Plaid Cymru in 2007, but in 2011 the constituency was won by the Conservative Janet Finch-Saunders, with a majority of 1,567 over Plaid.
