Labour has named its candidate to fight sitting Tory MP David Morris in the Morecambe and Lunesdale constituency at June's snap general election.
Former councillor for Westgate, Vikki Singleton, will stand.
She currently works as a youth worker.
She said: “It is an honour to be selected as the Labour candidate for Morecambe & Lunesdale. This seat has been neglected for too long. The residents deserve an MP who will fight for them and this area, both locally and nationally.
"I’ll be on the doorstep, talking to people over the next few weeks about my clear vision for Morecambe and Lunesdale, which focuses on bringing decent stable jobs to the area post Brexit, developing better public transport links, a quality education system that works for all our children and fighting tooth and nail for our local public services, especially our NHS that has been thrown into chaos by this Tory government.”
