Concession statement

I would like to warmly congratulate Ross Willmott on being selected as Labour’s nominee for Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner in next year’s election.

I pledge to do my very best to get Ross elected in May and I encourage all my friends to please do the same.

Ross is a kind and talented man. I know he will make an excellent PCC, following in the footsteps of the great Willy Bach.

Of course this is not the result that my supporters and I campaigned for, but I humbly accept the democratic decision of local Party members.

Thanks to my family, friends and supporters. In particular the wonderful individuals who donated funds, the dozens of activists who worked so hard for our cause, and every member who voted for me.

I count myself lucky to have had so many tremendous people backing me. Thank you.
