Final hours of campaigning in Newport West by-election

Home Affairs Correspondent

Some 145 miles from all the shenanigans in Westminster, it’s the final hours of campaigning for the candidates in the Newport West by-election. Whoever wins will be the first new MP in the seat since 1987.

It was held by Labour veteran Paul Flynn until he died in February. This was, of course, a by-election due to be taking place days after the UK had left the European Union.
