Owen Paterson: Labour set to contest North Shropshire by-election

BBC News says Labour sources have indicated the party will put up a candidate in the by-election prompted by Conservative MP Owen Paterson’s resignation.

Talks were held on Thursday between Labour, the Liberal Democrats and Greens over whether to back an independent “anti-sleaze” candidate.

Mr Paterson stepped down in North Shropshire following a row over his breaking of MPs’ rules.

No date has yet been set for the resulting by-election. North Shropshire has been an ultra-safe Conservative seat.
