NOMINATIONS closed at 4pm today (Monday) for the upcoming Heldon and Laich by-election.

Those who have put their names forward are Pete Bloomfield (Scottish Conservative and Unionist), James MacKessack-Leitch (Scottish Greens), Joyce O’Hara (SNP) and Dennis Slater (Independent).
The by-election will be held on October 1, with the count taking place the following day at Lossiemouth Town Hall.
