Ms Atkins said: “I am delighted to have been unanimously re-adopted as the Conservative candidate for Louth and Horncastle for the forthcoming general election. I look forward to getting out on the campaign trail to discuss the future of our wonderful corner of England.”

The Labour Party and UKIP have not yet revealed who their candidates will be, while the Green Party has announced today (Monday) that it will not be fielding a candidate in our constituency.
