“I’ve lived with my family in Clifton in Central Bedfordshire for over 30 years and many people in Kempston and Bedford will know me as a Post Master, businessman and former councillor.
“I have a long-term interest in policing and tackling crime: I was a police officer for five years with the Metropolitan Police and I currently serve as a member of the Independent Advisory Group to the Police.
