• Conservative candidate for Otter Valley attacks residents for trying to save Ottery Hospital

  • It isn’t the first time Mr Venner has lashed out at local people trying to save Ottery Hospital.

    After an event I organised at the hospital last May which Hugo Swire MP attended, Mr Venner referred to Ottery St Mary Hospital in a tweet as a “geriatric home.”

    In a few days the Conservatives will no doubt send a leaflet around pledging their support for local hospitals and the NHS.

    It is important that people are aware that in the Otter Valley, their Conservative candidate holds views that may be at odds with those set out in his leaflet.

    The elections are on Thursday 4 May.
