The Liberal Democrats have selected a candidate to contest the Bury St Edmunds seat in next year’s General Election.

David Chappell will stand for election in the constituency for the third time, having previously been selected to run for Parliament in 2005 and 2010.

Mr Chappell, who moved to Fornham All Saints in 1999 and has represented the area as parish councillor and borough councillor, is a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, recently working on the Kingdom Tower in Saudi Arabia.

He travelled back to the UK to attend a hustings meeting in Bury St Edmunds, where he has been overwhelmingly selected to stand for election in 2015.

Other candidates already announced for the Bury seat are Jo Churchill (Conservative), William Edwards (Labour), Dr Helen Geake (Green) and John Howlett (UKIP).
