UKIP leader Paul Nuttall to stand in Stoke Central by-election
Nuttall emerged triumphant after hustings alongside other shortlisted candidates on Friday night, setting the scene for a contest that will illuminate the shape of post-Brexit politics in England.
The by-election will be held alongside a separate poll in the Cumbrian seat of Copeland, triggered by the resignation of another Labour MP, Jamie Reed.

Labour will pick its candidate on Wednesday (25 January).
