Violinist entertains locked down neighbours

Watch: Lockdown concert in front gaden

A violin teacher from Weston-super-Mare has been entertaining her neighbours during the lockdown.

Laura Heathcote played a mix of classical and popular music in her front garden.

“People in my area are more elderly and they haven’t been able to get out, and I wanted to raise people’s spirits,” she said.

“I really wanted to give everyone something to look forward to.”

Laura said she received cards and had bottles of wine left on her doorstep by people to say thank you.

Weston-super-Mare: Conservative hold

Conservative MP John Penrose has won re-election in his Weston-super-Mare seat with an increased majority.

The Conservative MP beat Labour's Tim Taylor by 17,121 votes, 5,577 more votes than the majority at the 2017 election.

Patrick Keating of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Suneil Basu came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.3 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 56,000 people, roughly two-thirds of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the four candidates, Mr Basu lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
