Haverstock looked to be a safe Labour seat four years ago, when the party gained almost 46 per cent of the vote. But just a year later Lib Dem Jill Fraser spectacularly won a by-election.

The refurbished Haverstock school has been a key success for Labour but the Dalby luxury development stands against them and violent crime in the area is a big concern.
Sue Charlesworth, of Kentish Town, runs the charity shop North By NorthWest. She said: "I am a passionate supporter of animal rights and welfare. If elected I would especially try to find ways to help the pets we regularly see being treated harshly in our streets."
