A Norfolk district councillor has been announced as the Conservative candidate for Norwich South in the upcoming general election.

Lana Hempsall, Broadland District Councillor for Acle and member of the Broads Authority, will challenge Labour MP Clive Lewis for the seat on June 8.

In the 2015 election, Mrs Hempsall, who has three children, stood for Denton and Reddish in Greater Manchester.

She was born in Chiswick, London, studied in Manchester and moved to Surrey, before relocating to Norfolk in 2005.

The Conservatives Norwich group said they were 'very excited' to have Mrs Hempsall, who is registered blind, on board.
