Name error stops 106-year-old Win Hawkins voting

The family of a 106-year-old woman refused a vote at her polling station have said she is "devastated".

Win Hawkins was turned away from her local booth in the Monmouth constituency on Thursday by officials who said she was not registered.

Her family claim she was wrongly listed as Arwen, although her full name is Amy Winifred Hawkins.

Monmouthshire council officials said they would ensure Mrs Hawkins is registered for the next election "whenever that may be".
