The Liberal Democrats have announced their candidate to contest Filton and Bradley Stoke seat at the next general election.

Louise Harris, councillor for Dodington, has been selected for Filton & Bradley Stoke.

Conservative MP Jack Lopresti has held the seat since 2010.

Louise won the Dodington by-election in November after the death of Gloria Stephens.

She had proved a controversial candidate, with Conservative councillors pointing to reports she received a police harassment warning when a borough councillor in Hampshire.

Louise said: "It’s a great honour to become the candidate for Filton and Bradley Stoke.

“I’m looking forward to speaking about Lib Dem priorities and values in the area. We know that South Gloucestershire and the country have been let down by the Conservatives on education, the NHS, local services and Brexit, and I’m eager to listen to residents about their concerns.”

Last month, the party announced Claire Young as their canditate to contest the Thornbury and Yate seat, while Dine Romero, Lib Dem group leader on Bath & North East Somerset Council will contest Kingswood.

Claire Young added: “I’m delighted to stand alongside a team of talented women for the Lib Dems for the second election in a row.

"Voting Lib Dem here is a positive choice against the usual disappointing palate of bland politicos that will fill the Conservative and Labour tickets.

"Across our area, people are starting to demand better from Westminster, and I know Louise and Dine can provide it.”

Dine said:“The Kingswood constituency is an area with two stories.

“There are areas of new development here with a commuting population who will be feeling very nervous about their jobs as we approach Brexit day, and there is another group living with deprivation in their community who want answers to Conservative austerity.

"The Lib Dems demand better than Brexit, which will only make that struggle worse.”
