Teenager launches bid to become MP for Shrewsbury & Atcham
An 18-year-old woman is bidding to become Shrewsbury’s first female MP.
Hannah Locke is running as an independent candidate for the Shrewsbury and Atcham constituency at next month’s general election. If she were to win she would also be the youngest ever MP.
She said: “I want to bring local issues to the forefront and be a voice for young people.”
Miss Locke will be standing against four other candidates; Conservative Daniel Kawczynski, who has held the seat since 2005, Labour’s Julia Buckley, Nat Green from the Liberal Democrats, and Green Party representative Julian Dean.
