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.
