Four candidates will stand in a by-election for a Lancaster City Council seat in the University and Scotforth Rural ward.

The seat became vacant after Labour’s Matt Mann resigned last month.

The candidates are:

Xeina Aveyard (Green); Luke Henry Edward Brandon (Conservative), Nathan Neil Burns (Labour and Co-Operative party) and Pippa Jane Hepworth (Liberal Democrats).

The by-election will take place on Thursday, December 8. Mr Mann resigned after getting a new job outside the district.
