A by-election is taking place in Peterborough on Thursday 6th June to elect their MP following the recall of Fiona Onasanya.

The by-election was triggered after she was jailed for lying about a speeding offence.

She was suspended by the Labour Party, then forced out as MP after more than 19,000 Peterborough voters signed a petition to instigate a by-election.
