Voters head to the polls for Wirral by-election
WIRRAL residents will be heading to the polls today as Pensby and Thingwall’s by-election gets underway.
The election was called after Tory councillor Don McCubbin stood down earlier this year due to personal reasons.
It is the borough’s third by-election this year following polls in Leasowe and Moreton East and Heswall in January.
The candidates hoping to secure enough votes for a place in the town hall are: Phillip Brightmore for Labour and the Co-operative Party; Allen Burton for The Green Party; Sheila Clarke for Conservatives; Damien Cummins for Liberal Democrats; Jan Davison for UKIP; and Neil Kenny for the English Democrats.
