12 confirmed candidates for Norwich north

The candidate list for the Norwich North by-election has been published, with 12 people confirmed as standing.

The poll, to take place on 23 July, was triggered by the resignation of Labour MP Ian Gibson after he was deselected over his expenses claims.

Dr Gibson had a majority of 5,459 over the Conservatives in 2005.

Among the independents standing is Craig Murray, former Ambassador to Uzbekistan, who left the post in 2004 after criticising its human rights.

The Labour candidate is Chris Ostrowski while Chloe Smith is representing the Conservatives and April Pond is standing for the Liberal Democrats.

Rupert Read is standing for the Greens, Glenn Tingle for the UK Independence Party and Robert West for the BNP.
