Labour MP John Heppell to stand down

Labour MP for Nottingham East, John Heppell is to stand down at the general election expected in a matter of weeks.

John Heppell is 61 and had a majority of 6,939 at the last general election over the Liberal Democrats who were in second place ahead of the Tories.

He will hand in his notice at a party meeting later today.

John Heppell is standing down not because of expenses, but that he needed to help his wife Eileen through treatment for breast cancer.

I wish his wife a full recovery and respect to John for helping her through this very traumatic time, all the best to both of them.
