Tory candidate for Wiltshire police commissioner barred over drink-drive offence hours before votes counted

The Conservative candidate to be Wiltshire’s next police and crime commissioner has been disbarred due to a historic drink-driving offence, the party has said — less than 24 hours before the result was due to be declared.

 Jonathon Seed was widely expected to be elected at the county’s PCC when votes are counted on Monday.

A Conservative spokesperson said: “Due to a historic driving offence that has come to light, the candidate has been disbarred from becoming the police and crime commissioner.”
