Tunbridge Wells goes to the polls on June 8

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

Following a scramble to get candidates after Theresa May’s shock snap-election announcement last month, all of the country’s major parties have entered a candidate to compete for the seat, which was created in 1974.

It has been Conservative-held ever since, with Patrick Mayhew winning the first election, Archie Norman taking over in 1997 and then current business secretary Greg Clark taking over the seat in 2005.

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

Trevor Bisdee (Green)

Greg Clark (Cons)

Chris Hoare (Ukip)

Rachel Sadler (Lib Dems)

Celine Thomas (Women’s Equality Party)

Charles Woodgate (Labour)
