After a career in parks management, she is now a researcher and associate tutor in psychology at the University of East Anglia in Norwich and is especially interested in work-life balance.

Ms Biggart said she was formerly a Labour supporter, but disillusion with them and issues like Iraq, as well as a desire to protect the environment, led her to the Green Party.

'I believe in giving people a fair deal for people and the Green Party is the only ones that seem to be offering that.'
