Labour heading for win in Enfield and Haringey at halfway point
Labour candidate Joanne McCartney looks to be heading to a clear victory in the battle for Enfield and Haringey’s London Assembly seat.
Ms McCartney, who has held the seat for eight years, is estimated to have won 50 per cent of the vote with 52 per cent of ballots counted and verified, according to data from official body London Elects.
Conservative candidate Andy Hemsted is estimated to have won 28 per cent, with the Liberal Democrats and Green Party fighting for a distant third.
Voters in the two boroughs seem to have backed Labour’s Ken Livingstone for the capital’s mayor, with 46 per cent voting for him – an eight-point lead over incumbent Boris Johnson – although Mr Livingstone trails in London as a whole.
Results are expected later this evening, with announcements to be made at City Hall.
