A former HGV driver is standing as the Liberal Democrats’ Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for South West Norfolk.

Josie Ratcliffe will be standing against Conservative MP Elizabeth Truss, who has held the seat since 2010.

Ms Ratcliffe is already a borough councillor in Downham Market having been elected this year to represent the east Downham ward.

She said: “This election is our chance to address the big issues facing the UK – stopping Brexit so we can fund our NHS and our schools and tackle the climate emergency.”
