More young candidates

ANOTHER political party is showing its youthful side.

The Herald previously reported that the Northumberland Labour group has six candidates under the age of 30 in today’s elections.

Other Kirkhill candidates are: Ken Brown (LibDem), Dave Herne (Cons), David Parker (LibDem), Charlotte Peacock (Cons), Adrian Slassor (Lab), Andrew Tebbutt (LibDem), Joan Tebbutt (LibDem), Richard Wearmouth (Cons).
