The Cambridgeshire branch of the Labour Party has selected its candidate for the upcoming police and crime commissioner elections.

Dave Baigent is a former firefighter and lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University and will contest for the position at the election, due to take place on May 5.

Mr Baigent said: “I am delighted to receive the support of Labour Party members in Cambridgeshire and I look forward to campaigning with them to deliver a commissioner who will stand up to this Tory government over the reckless cuts to police in our county.

“If elected, I will work day and night to make our streets safer and protect our communities from the very worst government cuts.”

Also confirmed as standing for election are Nick Clarke, of UKIP, Rupert Moss-Eccardt, of the Liberal Democrats, and Jason Ablewhite, for the Conservatives.
