Screen Shot 2013-02-09 at 08.12.53I am delighted to report that Anne-Marie Trevelyan has been selected as the PCC for Berwick in an open primary. Chris Galley and Lucille Nicholson were the other two candidates.

At the last election Anne-Marie had a terrific result, reducing Alan Beith's Lib Dem majority in the seat from 8,632 to 2,690 – an impressive 8.3% swing. I'm delighted she's been readopted and hope she'll soon be MP for one of England's most beautiful seats. She'll make a great addition to the Tory benches.
