By-election date is set

VOTERS in Upperby will be asked to elect two councillors in a Carlisle City Council by-election on June 12.

Upperby should have gone to the polls with the rest of the city on May 1. But the death of BNP candidate Les Griffiths during the campaign caused the election to be postponed.

Since then sitting Labour councillor June Martlew has also died, creating a second vacancy in Upperby.

Both will be filled on the same day.

Electors have two votes and the main parties are each likely to field two candidates.

Nominations close on Thursday while the deadline for new postal-vote applications is May 28.

What faith do you have in rail services in Cumbria improving?

Every. Anything better than what we have currently is an improvement

None. There's little substance to what the Government is saying for the general passenger

It will get better - but only once old trains are taken off the tracks
