Independent Network launch local election campaign

The Independent Network, an organisation that supports non-party politicians, is launching its campaign to get prospective candidates ready for the forthcoming elections.

Former independent MP Martin Bell, who is promoting the campaign says the "independent councillor is answerable to no-one but his or her conscience and the constituents."

The local elections take place in just under four weeks' time.
