Now the candidates have finally been announced for the by-election which will take place on May 6, the same day as the London Mayoral election.

The candidates fighting for one seat representing Hampton Wick ward are as follows"

Back in July last year Mr Baxendale said it had been an honour to represent Hampton Wick ward.

He said: “I would like to especially thank my fellow ward councillors, Brown and Millard for their support and the excellent work they are doing for their community.

"I would like to thank all the Council and members and wish them all the best of luck for the future, especially my fellow Green Party councillors.”
