Morecambe Labour candidate cleared of election wrongdoing
Allegations that a Labour candidate for Morecambe and Lunesdale submitted a false statement in the 2017 general election have resulted in no further action being taken.
Vikki Singleton was accused by Conservatives in Morecambe of giving a Lancaster address in official election literature prior to the May 2017 general election – while openly stating she lives in Blackpool.
Mrs Singleton had listed herself as living within the constituency – in Woodlands Road, Skerton – on official nomination papers.
This was her parents’ address.
But following a police investigation which included consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Lancashire Police said no further action will be taken against any individual.
