Sitting MP: Daniel Zeichner (Lab)
Prediction: LibDem gain

I thought Julian Huppert would hold on last time but I was wrong. He’s standing again and in the biggest Remain constituency in the country, if they don’t take this seat back they can’t hope to win elsewhere. I’d say this was the most nailed on LibDem gain of them all.
