Three constituency polls show Lib Dem vote up very sharply in key seats

Three constituency polls commissioned by The Observer are out, all in heavily Remain areas and all showing a massive growth in Liberal Democrat support.

Kensington

The constituency where Sam Gyimah is standing:

Paul Kohler is the Liberal Democrat candidate here.
