Candidate clears up complaint

ELECTION hopeful David Bawn has clarified a complaint.

Last week Mr Bawn said that he had reported rival Ken Brown to the Standards Officer, but Coun Brown’s agent Andrew Tebbutt complained that Mr Bawn failed to say he was standing in the same ward.

Mr Bawn says he made it clear that he is Chairman of the local Conservatives and has confirmed that he is standing in Morpeth North.
