Changes to East Midlands Commons constituencies proposed

Two cross-county constituencies have been proposed in the East Midlands, under the latest proposed boundary changes.

Some of the southern parts of the current Rushcliffe constituency would combine with Loughborough, to create a new Loughborough and South Rushcliffe seat.

Further south, some of the current South Leicestershire seat would become part of a new Daventry and Lutterworth constituency.

In Derbyshire and Derby, a new North East Derbyshire constituency will be created that is in line with its local authority of the same name, and there will be a Bolsover constituency containing the entirety of Bolsover District.

There are no proposed changes to the Bassetlaw, High Peak, Leicester East, Leicester South, North West Leicestershire and Mansfield seats - but all the rest face some minor tweaks which you can see here.

MP voices disapproval of HS2

The Conservative MP for North West Leicestershire has said the county is "taking all of the pain for none of the gain" when it comes to HS2.

Andrew Bridgen has called the high speed railway line a "solution looking for a problem" and claims it will be "outstripped by technology".

It's been a month since the government's latest proposals were announced - there was relief for some businesses and communities in Appleby Magna, but concern now that the line will cut between East Midlands Airport and Kegworth.

The Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has said the line will "bring huge economic benefits across the country and spread wealth beyond London and the south-east".

Bridgen: Time for people to bring photo ID in order to vote

People should have to provide photo ID in order to vote at elections, according to North West Leicestershire MP Andrew Bridgen.

Mr Bridgen said that people could vote "all day long in different polling stations."

"It's been highlighted that when someone goes to vote, all they need is a name and address," he added.

"In theory someone could get hold of a telephone directory and vote all day long in different polling stations.

"Does the minister agree with me that it is time for photo ID to prevent electoral fraud?"

Chris Skidmore, the constitutional affairs minister, said that there would be voter ID pilots carried out at next year's local elections.

MP breaks into song

Dave Wade

BBC Local Live

Ever wanted to hear an MP sing? No, neither have I.

Nevertheless, take it away, Andrew Bridgen, Conservative MP for North West Leicestershire...

He "treated" a BBC Two film crew to this rendition while filming the documentary Brexit Means Brexit, which airs on BBC Two tonight.

I must admit, I'm not familiar with the tune but it appears Sting did a version...

It has also been announced that Labour's Toby Perkins will be defending his Chesterfield seat.

In Derby South, Labour's Margaret Beckett will go up against Liberal Democrat Joe Naitta again, just as she did in 2015

In Derbyshire Dales, Patrick McLoughlin will look to hold the seat for the Conservatives against his 2015 general election opponent, Labour's Andy Botham. 

Maggie Throup is also vying to retain Erewash for the Tories. Labour's Catherine Atkinson will be one candidate contesting the seat. 

In High Peak, Conservative Andrew Bingham hopes to be re-elected while Labour's Ruth George is running against him. In North East Derbyshire, Labour's Natascha Engel will look to keep her seat.

Tory Heather Wheeler and Labour's Robert Pearson have been confirmed as two of the candidates who will fight for the South Derbyshire constituency, while Labour's Sean Sheahan will be just one candidate looking to unseat Conservative Andrew Bridgen in North West Leicestershire.  

We expect many more candidates will announce their intention to run and we will bring the news as we hear it.
