Tories name Leicester South by-election candidate
The Conservatives have named their candidate for the Leicester South by-election in May.
Jane Hunt will go head-to-head with Labour's candidate Jonathan Ashworth and Liberal Democrat Zuffar Haq.
The by-election has been prompted by Sir Peter Soulsby stepping down as an MP to run for the new role of Leicester's directly elected mayor.
Residents face three other ballots on 5 May, city and mayoral elections and the alternative vote referendum.
Leicester City Council is currently under Labour control.
