WINCHESTER city councillor Martin Tod is among the Liberal Democrat candidates for the European elections.

Mr Tod, a city and county councillor, is fourth on this list out of ten in the South East constituency. It means that should his party do well in the poll on Thursday May 23 he stands a good chance of being elected. The first on the list is current MEP Catherine Bearder.

Cllr Tod said: “I am sick of seeing footage of Nigel Farage and Dan Hannan spout nonsense in the European Parliament as they betray our national interest. As a Liberal Democrat MEP, I will go back at them, hard. Britain should be leading in Europe, not leaving.”

Fifth on the list is Liz Leffman who stood as the Lib Dem candidate at the 2010 General Election in the Meon Valley.
