ELECTION: Apology for leaflet error

I reply to ‘name and address supplied’ who had an election leaflet for the College Ward put through his letter box when actually he is in the Seaton Ward (News Post Leader, August 13).

Although the mistake was realised very early on, I give my sincere apology and hope this will never happen again.

My wife confirms I make mistakes all the time, and no doubt this will continue, so I will allow him to gloat on this occasion.

On a serious note, however, UKIP came a credible second to Labour in this county council seat and as with many other seats fought in the recent General Election held earlier this year, UKIP is beginning to be a worrying trend for Labour, and especially across the north east.
