Former Peterborough MP Stewart Jackson, who lost his seat to Labour in the 2017 general election, has announced he will not be standing again.

“It feels like the end of an era but I won’t be seeking the Conservative nomination in Peterborough for either by election or General Election,” he tweeted.

The Conservative party will choose its next Parliamentary candidate next month.
