Ex-city student appointed MEP

Have your say

A FORMER Sheffield University student will be the new Lib Dem MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber.

Rebecca Taylor, who studied Japanese and Business Management in the city from 1993 to 1995 before completing her course in Leeds, is to take over from Diana Wallis.

Ms Taylor, who is from West Yorkshire, has worked in the health sector for the last decade and is completing a masters degree in public health. No election is required because people vote for parties rather than candidates in European elections.
