NEW research has suggested the outcome of tomorrow's election in Frank Dobson's Holborn and St Pancras seat is too close to call.
The London Communications Agency has predicted the outcomes of all the London parliamentary seats as well as the local council results with some interesting findings.
The predictions are based on ongoing research from national polls and the bookies to analysis of political blogs and every local paper in London.
Holborn and St Pancras is one of seven London seats which according to the analysis are too close to call. It is between London's longest-serving MP and the surging Liberal Democrats.
This is the fifth time LCA has predicted the results of elections and they have a high success rate.
Managing director at LCA Robert Gordon Clark said: "We put money up for each prediction we get wrong. This year we are earmarking �100 per MP seat and directly elected Mayor (there are three) and �250 per borough.

"For those seats and boroughs in the Too Close To Call category, we are paying out �500 now."
The money will go to a charity in the constituencies and boroughs that were wrongly predicted.
The predictions also see Ed Fordham the winner in Hampstead and Kilburn, no change in the Lib Dem Tory coalition in Camden Council but the Lib Dems winning Haringey Council from the Labour party.
