Local Politics | Local Lib Dems Spell Own Candidates Name WrongAn election leaflet for the Liberal Democrats in St Marys Ward has been delivered to thousands of homes with a spelling error for one of their candidates.

Sheryl Scott-Clarke is standing for the first time as a Liberal Democrat in St Marys and is listed on the leaflet with a C rather than an S.

Instead of leaving the error, the Lib Dems wielded pens and added a curly tail to the C making a wobbly S.

Andover & Villages spoke to Sheryl, who said, “It was just a typo, I’m not upset or angry, its just one of those things. Most computer programmes correct my name to having a C at the front.”

Sheryl would not confirm who was responsible for the error.
