Constituency description

The seat ranges from Islington to Hackney and as well as including affluent and fashionable areas - Tony Blair was once a resident - it is also home to some of the most deprived parts of the capital, with crime, housing and school standards all a problem.

Tensions between local communities and the police have been a problem in some parts of Hackney.

This seat is also home to Culture Secretary Chris Smith, once touted as a Labour mayoral candidate.

Parliamentary seats here include: Part of Chingford and Woodford Green (Con), Hackney North and Stoke Newington(Lab), Hackney South and Shoreditch (Lab), Islington North(Lab), Islington South and Finsbury(Lab), Walthamstow(Lab) and part of Leyton and Wanstead(Lab).
