Electoral forecasters are near-certain Telford is about to swing to Labour. It has been Tory lately but is currently held by an independent - Lucy Allan, formerly a Conservative, who was suspended by the party in May 2024.

That came after she publicly supported the Reform UK candidate for Telford, Alan Adams. Telford has largely been a Labour seat until it was won by Ms Allan in 2015 and is very much a target in the 2024 General Election.

Tories will be desperate to hold on to Telford but Electoral Calculus strongly forecasts a Labour win this time round. It comes amidst a tough time for Rishi Sunak's party which is predicted to lose despite an 80-seat majority in 2019.
