    Reacting to the news that former Ukip and Brexit party leader Nigel Farage visited Bromsgrove to film a video criticising local residents seeking asylum, local campaigner and spokesperson for the Bromsgrove Lib Dems Sam Evans said: "hate is not welcome here".

    He added: "Whilst we understand concerns about illegal immigration, it is unacceptable that Mr Farage should travel to Bromsgrove to make a video criticising people temporarily housed here for safety reasons due to the pandemic. These people are not illegal immigrants and are legitimately housed in our local area whilst awaiting a decision on their status. Due to UK law they are prohibited from working in the UK."

    Councillors have welcomed news that Worcestershire County Council have backed a bid for an all electric bus in Bromsgrove.

    Councillor Siobhan Hughes, who represents Bromsgrove Central, expressed that she was pleased with the news that will help boost the town's green credentials.

    The Lib Dem councillor received cross-party support for her motion last year that saw Bromsgrove District Council declare a Climate Emergency and establish a climate change working group. In her calls to establish the group she identified the need for electric transport in the town to help make Bromsgrove carbon neutral.
