Four people will battle it out for the Cromer seat on North Norfolk District Council, which came up after the death of leader Keith Johnson.

The candidates for the poll on Thursday, February 21 are:

● Jen Emery, Norwich Road, Cromer - Labour

● Tony Nash, Cromer Road, Overstrand - Conservative

● David Ramsbotham, Plumstead - UKIP

● Andreas Yiasimi, St Mary’s Road, Cromer - Liberal Democrat.

Contrary to a previous report, John Morgan will not be a candidate, following an error in his application.
