By-Election Set For 15 Nov

24 October 2012, 11:36

People in Corby and East Northamptonshire will choose a new MP on 15 November 2012 after the resignation of Louise Mensch (right).

The former author quit as Corby MP in August 2012 so she could move to New York to be with her husband.

The Corby by-election will be held on the same day people up and down England and Wales (excluding London) vote to choose their new Police and Crime Commissioners - a new role set up to oversee the work of police forces.

People elected as PCCs will have the power to determine police forces' priorities in tackling crime.  They will also have the power to hire and fire police Chief Constables.
