Mr Lammy said: “I spent much of my childhood in Peterborough studying at the Kings School, so this city will always have a special place in my heart. It was a pleasure to come back today, to meet the students and see some of my wonderful former teachers again.

“I also came to support Andrew Pakes, Labour’s fantastic candidate to be the next MP for the city.

“Families across Peterborough are struggling to make ends meet after years of ‘sticking plaster’ politics.

“Representatives like Andrew in a Labour government will help us get our confidence and our future back, and places like Peterborough are at the heart of our plans to transform the country for the better.”
