Two women set for by-election

Have your say

TWO women have been named as possible replacements for Rotherham MP Denis MacShane.

Labour Party sources claim former RAF worker Sophy Gardner, and Sarah Champion, who runs Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, North Anston, are in the running to stand in the by-election.

Mr MacShane quit after he was found to have wrongfully claimed some expenses.

A Labour source said: “It is important we have the best possible candidate to deal with the exceptional circumstances in which this by-election is taking place.”
