Election candidate breaks his arm

It’s always tough on the election trail, but most candidates emerge with nothing worse than a bruised ego.

Not so James Blanchard however. Spare a thought for the Lib Dem candidate for York Central – he’s broken his elbow in a cycling accident.

Perhaps if the Lib Dems get into power they’ll prioritise fixing the potholes that us cyclists have to negotiate every time we journey around York (although there’s no suggestion a pothole was responsible for James’s injury…)
