A criminal lawyer will attempt to win the Sheffield Central seat for the Conservatives in next month's General Election.

Steph Roe will vie for votes in the constituency currently held by Labour's Paul Blomfield.

Kicking off her campaign this week, she said: “The Labour party think they have Sheffield Central in the bag. But I think they are complacent, especially as so many people know that Corbyn would be a terrible Prime Minister.

"Brexit is the key issue this time and the feedback I get from voters is that Theresa May is the only one they trust to deliver a good deal. So, I am appealing to voters to give the Prime Minister their support on June 8.”

This week Mrs Roe unveiled three policies for Sheffield Cental:

- To unite the city and country and 'stand together in supporting Theresa May to get the best possible deal for the UK in the EU negotiations'.

- Use her experience as a criminal lawyer to make the streets safer

- Work with the Government to get the 'best deal for Sheffield's interests'.

She said: “Sheffield is a great city. That is why I am standing again for election here.

"There is so much that can be done to improve the city and for too long its interests have not been represented properly in Westminster.

The other candidates in Sheffield Central are:

Natalie Bennett (Green)

Paul Blomfield (Lab)

Jack Carrington (Yorkshire Party)

Dominic Cook (Ukip)

Shaffaq Mohammed (Lib Dem)

Robert Moran (Pirate Party UK)

Joe Westridge (SDP)
