Leader of the Green party on Oswestry Town Council, Councillor Duncan Kerr, said there would be a hustings of those from the party who wanted to stand in the by-election on Thursday.

He said they would outline their reasons and ideals before members voted for their candidate.

Councillor Kerr said: "We will be giving residents the chance to vote for the only party that has the values, policies and people to build a sustainable and equitable country.
