Shear relief for Tory candidate

Have your say

LAST-minute campaigning before this week’s local elections took an unusual turn for one candidate.

Vonny Watts, standing for the Conservatives in Fulwood, reached for her shears after a complaint from a resident about tree branches obscuring a road sign giving the speed limit on Blackbrook Road, Blackbrook, in the ward.

She said: “I went out at the request of a resident to help with an obscured sign which he had reported.”
