Conservatives chose Wolverhampton candidate for general election

The Conservatives have chosen a candidate to try to unseat a Labour shadow minister at the General Election.


Darren Henry has been chosen as prospective parliamentary candidate for Wolverhampton North East.

The seat is held by Labour's Emma Reynolds, shadow housing minister, with a majority of 2,484.

The Tories have won it only once since 1950.

Mr Henry, a former Squadron Leader in the Royal Air Force, worked for Wolverhampton based Carillion before going on to be general manager of a small business.

He said: "It is a great honour to have been chosen and I will be an ambassador for the Wolverhampton North East community as I was when I had responsibility for military communities."
