Sheffield Hallam

Profile

Sheffield Hallam is the seat of former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, a Liberal Democrat. It covers areas including Crookes, Broomhill, Dore and Totley, Fulwood. It also encompasses the large student villages of Endcliffe and Ranmoor. Of the five seats in Sheffield, Hallam is the only one which didn't return a Labour candidate to Parliament in 2015, although Ed Miliband's party were within 5% of gaining the seat. Before the Lib Dems won the seat in 1997, it had been a Conservative seat for over a century, bar a two-year spell following a 1916 by-election.
