Peterborough by-election: The historic campaign in photos

It’s been a remarkable month in Peterborough with the city becoming a hotbed of political activity once a by-election was called.

Former MP Fiona Onasanya was recalled by her constituents after being jailed for perverting the course of justice which led to a five week campaign, followed by the election of Labour’s Lisa Forbes. Here is the story of the by-election campaign as captured by the Peterborough Telegraph in photos.
