Jill HopeLib Dem candidate Jill Hope has said she is not surprised Labour's Andy Sawford has pulled out of tonight's debate on Corby Radio.

Jill appeared with four candidates, including Andy Sawford, on a debate this morning on BBC Radio Northampton.

During the show Mr Sawford came under fire for his scaremongering on the future of KetteringHospital.

He has now pulled out of the debate on Corby Radio later this evening.

Jill Hope said, "Andy Sawford clearly can't stand the heat, so he's got out of the kitchen. He has spun the KetteringHospital story throughout this campaign and it's clear he cannot cope when people start asking questions. If he cannot deal with this kind of pressure then he won't stand a chance in Parliament if elected."
