Sitting MP: Alan Whitehead (Lab)
Prediction: Conservative gain

This seat was held by the Tories up until 1997, but has been relatively solidly Labour ever since. However, as in Itchen, its vote has been on the decline and Labour will be a little worried about losing it if the Tories get a big majority. One to watch on election night.
