Due to the horrific incident in Manchester last night and the suspension of election campaigning today, we have decided to cancel the hustings that was due to take place this evening.

We are looking to see if it would be possible to rearrange prior to the election and will keep you informed.

Glad you are trying to re-arrange. Taking all the circumstances into account it will be better if the hustings take place - albeit delayed - than not take place at all.

Hustings are an important part of our system of democracy - long may they continue.

Maybe I missed it but have the constituents been allowed to make a presentation to Jim for all his work on their behalf.

Mr Dowd was at the hustings last night. He gave a little speech at the end, honour to have represented this wonderful constituency for so many years, good luck to my successor whoever she is, etc. He received a resounding round of applause.
