Former Home Secretary Alan Johnson is coming to Market Rasen to campaign for Labour PPC David Prescott and talk about his life and times at a gala dinner.

The former postman, current Hull West MP and best-selling author will attend the dinner at Hemswell Court on April 10. He will also join Mr Prescott campaigning in Market Rasen.

“I used to work with Alan on the London Challenge plan that successfully improved the performance of London state schools. I’m sure his speech will be humorous, moving and fascinating,” Mr Prescott said.

Mr Johnson said he was “looking forward” to visiting Rasen, adding David Prescott “will be a fantastic MP.”
