Copeland By-election – Trudy Harrison elected

Trudy Harrison has been elected as Conservative MP for Copeland in the by-election on 23 Feb.

She had previously expressed her opposition to new giant pylons, and joined us on the St George’s Day Black Combe walk in April 2016.

In an email to PWP, she said  “I support Moorside, and the nuclear industry locally, [but] given the impact that the National Grid’s plans would have on our local area, I don’t support them in their current form”.

We look forward to working with her to persuade National Grid PLC to change their damaging plans for giant pylons in and around the Duddon Estuary.
