Lib Dem candidate Julie Pörksen is promising to be a listening MP as she celebrates knocking on her 10,000th door of the campaign.

Julie, who is standing to replace Sir Alan Beith, reached the 10,000-door milestone in St John’s Estate in Hadston on Monday morning and said it showed her commitment to be as hard-working and accessible an MP as Alan.

She said: “One of the things people still remember from when Alan was first elected is his promise to hold regular surgeries, something his Conservative predecessor never did.

He stood by that promise for 42 years and I’m making the same guarantee to local residents at this election.”
