Labour candidate Ms Ware has been given a clear run at the seat – with no other parties standing.

The Conservatives confirmed that they decided to stand aside as a mark of respect for the late Mr Collop, with the other parties understood to have made the same decision.

Meanwhile, a county vacancy was created in Gaywood North and Central after Conservative member Graham Middleton stood down, citing pressures on his time.
