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.

Mr Johnson, who was also a long-serving Cromer town councillor, turned the gun on himself after shooting his wife Andrea in December 2012.

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.

  • is it really necessary to keep showing complimentary photographs of a man who killed his wife.

  • At least voters have the choice of an Independent, someone who does not have to perform for their party and is held back by dogma, serving aspirational promises they can't keep. An Independent has the freedom to represent all in Cromer, good luck to him and Cromer as a whole.
