SIR Ed Davey has addressed residents in the Yeovil constituency ahead of the general election on Thursday, July 4.

The Liberal Democrat leader has urged the public to “vote for historic change” by choosing the Liberal Democrats, stating: "This will be a once-in-a-century election."

“From former Conservative heartlands like Tunbridge Wells to communities across the West Country such as St Ives and Yeovil, people must vote Liberal Democrat if they want to kick this Conservative Government out of office for good.

“Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to beat Conservative MPs in scores of seats, save our NHS, end the sewage scandal and elect a strong local champion.”

In the Yeovil constituency, Lib Dem candidate Adam Dance will stand for election against Steve Ashton (Independent), Laura Bailhache (Reform UK), Marcus Fysh (Conservative), Rebecca Montacute (Labour), and Sererna Wootton (Green Party).
