Mon, 12:38

The four main parties hoping to win in Hampstead and Kilburn were out in force in West Hampstead on Saturday morning, as just a handful of days remained before polling day.

Politics has always been a family affair for Tulip Siddiq.

It's not often that John Major's government politicised anybody.

Johnny Luk has been twisting arms inside the Conservative Party.

Love Actually and Notting Hill star Hugh Grant has backed Luciana Berger in Finchley and Golders Green, praising her as a "principled politician with guts."

After more than 100 days in office, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has continued to ignore requests from Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's husband to meet again, and in an astonishing 3,500 word letter made public this morning, Richard Ratcliffe attacked the words and actions of both the PM and government and those of his predecessor.

"It definitely feels a lot more positive than in 2017 for us."

London mayor Sadiq Khan has branded the EU Settlement Scheme a failure as figures show almost two thirds of people in Camden have failed to register.

Despite defending a 30,000 majority from 2017, Labour's candidate Catherine West said she was "always nervous" about keeping her seat.

It's been quite the year for Luciana Berger.

Any seasoned election campaigner has heard excuses from activists as to why they can't deliver leaflets.

Mike Freer's used to the attention being on his Finchley and Golders Green seat.

The historic Warrington Hotel in Maida Vale has been dramatically closed by Westminster City Council over "a serious mice and cockroach infestation."

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's family have welcomed the Labour Party's manifesto commitment to fight for justice her and others detained in similar circumstances abroad.

Former Prime Minister Theresa May has said remain-backing Conservative voters should back Mike Freer so they can "move on" from Brexit.

The Liberal Democrats launched their General Election manifesto in Camden on Wednesday evening - and Hampstead and Kilburn candidate Matt Sanders was given the honour of introducing party leader Jo Swinson.

A dad-of-two who was hit by a car with his daughter outside Martin Primary School has praised efforts to improve road safety in East Finchley.

Jo Swinson's battle bus parked up in Kensal Rise at the weekend in the hope of picking up disillusioned Labour voters.

Abacus Belsize Primary School's latest bid to move into the former Hampstead Police Station was unanimously rejected by Camden Council's planning committee last night.

A vote for local Liberal Democrat candidate Luciana Berger is a vote for Jeremy Corbyn, according to Chancellor Sajid Javid.
