A by-election to find a new Sheffield councillor will be held next month.

Residents of the Beighton ward will go to the polls on October 12 to replace Labour's Helen Mirfin-Boukouris, who stepped down to focus on her PhD.

Candidates have until 4pm tomorrow to get their nomination papers in.

Whoever is elected will join Labour's Chris Rosling-Josephs and Ian Saunders in representing the ward.

Labour have put forward Sophie Wilson.
