Jerome Mayhew, the Broadland MP, has said he plans to stand again at the next election, describing his role as a job he "loves".

The announcement from Mr Mayhew, who is serving his first time having only been elected in 2019, comes after Norwich North MP Chloe Smith said that she would not be contesting her seat again.

Duncan Baker, the Tory MP for North Norfolk has said he will stand again.

Mr Mayhew confirmed his intention to run again as he responded to the news that the Boundary Commission proposes renaming his constituency.

Under the plans, it will become Broadland and Fakenham.

“I am delighted the Boundary Commission has recognised that Fakenham is not part of the Broads and renamed the constituency,” he said.

“I have worked hard to represent Fakenham’s interests over the last three years, from fighting for decent Post Office provision to pushing for the rebuild of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

“It is a job I love and will certainly be putting my name forward to stand at the next election.”
