PUBLISHED: 13:59 12 May 2017




Canterbury goes to the polls on June 8

With the general election just weeks away, the candidates vying for a seat in Canterbury have been revealed.

Following a scramble to get candidates after Theresa May’s shock snap-election announcement last month, the Conservatives, Liberal Democrats, Labour and Greens have chosen candidates, but Ukip will not be contesting the seat, which dates back as far as 1295.

A traditionally Conservative seat, it has been held by Tory Sir Julian Brazier since 1987.

The candidates standing in Canterbury for the general election on June 8 are:

Julian Brazier (Cons)

Rosie Duffield (Labour)

James Flanagan (Lib Dems)

Henry Stanton (Green)
