UKIP selects candidate to fight Police and Crime Commissioner election in Lincolnshire


A county councillor will be the official UKIP candidate in the battle to become Lincolnshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner.

Sources have confirmed that Victoria Ayling will represent the party in elections for the £85,000-a-year post in May.

Coun Ayling is well known in county political circles and has stood for the Great Grimsby seat in two General Elections, including 2015.

Her deputy will be Jonathan Ferrari, a Horncastle town councillor and business owner.

The Conservatives have already announced their candidate, County Councillor Marc Jones.

The current commissioner is Alan Hardwick who visited Horncastle this morning (Tuesday).

Mr Hardwick has still to decide whether he will seek re-election but is in the process of drawing up long-term plans for the force and continuing financial cutbacks.
