Tomorrow, voters go to the polls in Lincolnshire for the Sleaford and North Hykeham by-election. It came about due to the resignation of the Conservative MP Stephen Phillips, who was elected in 2015 with a 24,000 majority, so it may initially seem as though the seat will stay Tory. However, the constituency is very pro-Brexit, and as a result of slow Brexit negotiations, residents may stray away from their expected alliance.
Share Radio's Glen Goodman spoke to John Curtice, Professor of Politics at the University of Strathclyde, for his thoughts on the by-election.
