Covid rates in London are still very high. Please follow NHS advice to avoid catching and spreading coronavirus. Information and how to get vaccinated is on Camden Council’s coronavirus web page and Westminster Council’s coronavirus web page.
The election battle in Fitzrovia will be confined to Fitzrovia West which is part of the West End ward. The result could go to either Labour or the Conservatives. It is very likely to be a very close result. Fitzrovia East (part of Bloomsbury) is a safe seat for Labour. In this newsletter we have a report on hustings in Bloomsbury, and Holborn and Covent Garden; and interviews with the Conservative and Labour candidates standing in the West End ward.
The are hustings for the West End ward going on tonight (Thursday) in Soho. You can watch and listen here.
If you want to get in touch with us to tell us what you think of our reporting or to contribute to Fitzrovia News please email us at
