The 2015 general election saw Welwyn Hatfield and every other Hertfordshire borough vote Conservative – propelling the party into an unexpected majority in Westminster.

Ahead of the snap general election on June 8 this year, here is a breakdown of votes across the Welwyn Hatfield Times’ areas last time:

Speaking outside Downing Street on Tuesday, April 18, Prime Minister Theresa May set out her reasons for calling the vote.

She claimed the only way to “guarantee certainty and stability for the years ahead is to hold this election and seek your support for the decisions I must take”.

Downing Street had previously denied a vote would be held before the next scheduled poll, which was due in 2020.
