A complaint was made to the police as the leaflets did not have imprints on the first or last pages, as required by law under the Representation of the People Act.

A police spokesman said they would not be pursuing the matter as ‘it is not in the public interest to do so at this time.’ They said the candidates had been contacted and given advice on the requirements for publications.
