    If you were planning a barbeque this weekend, you might want to wait until Sunday, because we're forecast rain tomorrow.

  16. Candidate told it's too late to take name off ballot paper

    Local Democracy Reporting Service

    A man who announced yesterday that he was withdrawing as a candidate in a town council by-election, has been told he can't take his name off the ballot paper, because he missed the deadline to pull out.

    Andrew Griffin was one of five people to put their name forward for election to Newport Town Council, but later decided he wanted to back the Lib Dem candidate, Nick Garvey instead.

    Andrew Griffin

    He says he won't go out to canvas votes, after Telford and Wrekin Council told him the deadline for withdrawing from next month's by-election was 5 July.

    The vote is being held after the Conservative candidate who was elected in May declined to take up the seat.

    The other candidates are:

    • Independent - Wendy Hesbrook
    • Labour’s Sarah Branton
    • Conservative Sarah Pearson
