Sheffield Green Party has launched its local election campaign - announcing it will stand candidates in all 28 wards for the May 5 poll.

Key targets are Central ward, where the party’s longest-serving councillor, Jillian Creasy, is seeking re-election. She has represented the area since 2004.

Also in the Greens’ sights is Broomhill, where former central ward councillor Bernard Little is standing. Lib Dems are defending.

Coun Creasy, whose seat is vulnerable to a challenge from Labour, said: “I live in Central and am delighted to be a candidate to represent local residents again. I believe I am well known for addressing residents’ concerns. I want to give voters a clear alternative to Labour and the Lib Dems, who are not tackling concerns about jobs, public service cuts and many other issues.”
