Former Cambridgeshire police and crime commissioner Jason Ablewhite is making a return to politics.
He is one of six people nominated for election as a parish councillor at Benwick, a small Fenland village near Chatteris and March.
Since only six candidates put themselves up for election – and there are seven seats on the parish council – it means automatic election for Mr Ablewhite.
His return, at local level, to politics comes more than three and a half years after he resigned his £85,000 role as police and crime commissioner.
Mr Ablewhite’s departure from the post followed an inquiry by The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) prompted by a member of the public coming forward with screen shots of the posts.
In recent times Mr Ablewhite, a former executive leader of Huntingdonshire District Council, has worked hard in the village community at Benwick where he has chaired the village hall committee.
