The Prime Minister, Theresa May visited the Brentford & Isleworth constituency on Friday (5 May) on her general election campaign.

The visit is another indication the Conservatives are not taking for granted winning a seat which the national polls suggest they should regain comfortably. It follows on from the appearance of Home Secretary Amber Rudd earlier in the week who came to talk to residents about concerns regarding anti-social behaviour on Chiswick Back Common.

Mrs May was at the Brentford headquarters of Octink, a design consultancy, and held a question and answer session with staff. They tweeted: "We were privileged to have a great Q&A session with #PrimeMinister @theresa_may and @MaryMacleodUK at Octink this afternoon! #Brentford"

Mary Macleod said, "It was good to have the Prime Minister in the constituency so early in the campaign and it shows how important she thinks it is to win this seat back."

Mrs. May also took part in a question and answer session with Octink staff, where she was quizzed on a range of topics, from Brexit to women as role models.

Theresa May was last in the area when she visited Chiswick Business Park as Home Secretary and spoke about women and domestic violence.

Her visit to the constituency came as local election results were being announced showing large gains for the Tories in the UK. However Mrs May said she would not be complacent about the results.

Former MP Mary Macleod is aiming to win the seat back for the Conservatives, having lost it to Labour's Ruth Cadbury in 2015. Ms Cadbury is standing again for Labour, while the Liberal Democrat candidate is Joe Bourke, and the Green Party candidate is Diane Scott.
