General election: UKIP branches in three Somerset seats won't field candidates

UKIP have confirmed that they aren't contesting three seats in Somerset for the upcoming general election.

Wells, Somerton and Frome and Yeovil won't have any UKIP candidates on the ballot paper.

In Wells, the UKIP Wells Association Branch chair says their committee voted unanimously not to stand a candidate, as they are broadly supportive of the current MP James Heappey's support for Theresa May's Brexit plans.

They don't want to contest the constituencies of Wells, Somerton & Frome or Yeovil
