Former Tory Cheshire MP joins Lib-Dems

Former Conservative MP Antoinette Sandbach has joined the Liberal Democrats.

She will contest her Eddisbury seat in Cheshire for the party in next month's general election.

She was among 21 Conservative MPs who lost the party whip in September after voting to assist the passage of a backbench-instigated bill seeking to stop no deal Brexit.
