The Young People’s Party is fielding a candidate in the Corby and East Northants by-election.

In his election blog, Dr Rohen Kapur says that he worked as a junior doctor at Kettering, practising psychiatry.

He says: “I would often visit Corby for interest. The Scottish accent was more familiar to me as I studied medicine in Scotland.

“I have always enjoyed my time in Northamptonshire and loved the rambling countryside along with the Eleanor Cross at Geddington which is not far from Corby.”

Lord Toby Jug is standing for the Official Monster Raving Loony Party. A musician from St Ives, he is leader of the Cambridge and Huntingdon branch of the party.

The main political parties have already announced their prospective parliamentary candidates with Andy Sawford standing for Labour, Christine Emmett for the Conservatives, Jill Hope for the Liberal Democrats and Margot Parker for UKIP.

Also standing in the by-election, being held on November 15 following the resignation of Louise Mensch, is David Wickham of the English Democrats.
