Conservative Candidate in Swansea Threatened

Louise Thomas, a Conservative candidate in the May local elections, has said she has been attacked and insulted over recent weeks. She added that her dogs had been poisoned and that dead rats had been thrown into her garden. The attacks have been condemned by other political parties who are contesting the ward on Swansea Council.

The local police said in a statement:

“We take all reports of this nature very seriously and have met the complainant. A support package has been put in place by the Neighbourhood Policing Team. If anyone has any information concerning these allegations, they are urged to contact us quoting reference 243”.
