The Labour Party has selected its candidate for the Old Bexley & Sidcup Parliamentary By-Election.

Daniel Francis has been selected as the Labour Party candidate for the Old Bexley & Sidcup By-election.

Daniel has lived in Bexley his whole life and his children attend local schools.

Daniel has been a borough councillor for 17 years and is the longest serving Labour councillor on the Borough council.

He is currently the shadow cabinet member for energy, climate and housing.

Labour says a vote for Daniel is a vote for standing up for small businesse, prioritising community safety and driving investment to local areas.

The by-election follows the death of MP Conservative James Brokenshire.

Old Bexley and Sidcup has been held by the Conservatives since its creation and Brokenshire had a majority of 18,952.
