The Green Party candidate for Loughborough will be Wesley Walton. Wes, a Mechanical Engineering student at Loughborough University, 22, has been the Young Greens Coordinator for the East Midlands and stood for the Green Party in this year's local elections, coming third in Loughborough Storer ward.
