Voters in Old Laund Booth go to the polls tomorrow to elect a new Pendle councillor.

The by-election has been caused by the resignation of long-serving Liberal Democrat councillor John David, who stood down in May because of ill health.

There will be four candidates for villagers to choose from – Jill Hartley (Conservative), Brian Newman (Lib Dem), Kieron Hartley (Blue) and Mick Waddington (UKIP).

Labour is not fielding a candidate.
