In Cambridge, eight candidates will compete, with Labour’s Daniel Zeichner hoping to hold on to his seat against pressure from Liberal Democrat Rod Cantrill.

Mr Zeichner received a boost from a well-known name, with Mary Beard - the University of Cambridge classicist, often seen on TV - endorsing him and named as one of his official proposers on the official polling notice.

In South Cambridgeshire, only three candidates will stand: Conservative Anthony Browne will hope what has been a safe Tory seat will go his way, but early opinion polls suggest the Liberal Democrat candidate, Ian Sollom, has a chance to win in the constituency. Daniel Greef is standing for Labour in the constituency. The Greens had been due to field a candidate, but stood down as part of a Unite to Remain pact with the Lib Dems.

The seat had belonged to Heidi Allen, the Remain MP who was elected a Tory in 2015 and 2017, spent time as an independent and with Change UK, then joined the Lib Dems in October, before announcing that she would not stand again due to the threats and intimidation she had received.

In South East Cambridgeshire, Conservative Lucy Frazer will be hopeful of retaining a significant majority for the party against three opponents.
