South Tyneside goes to the polls on Thursday in the latest local elections.

Here’s what candidates in the Hebburn South ward ave to say as they compete for your votes.

Matthew Giles (Green Party)

Jeremy Corbyn becoming Labour leader has reinvigorated opposition to Tory cuts this year.

Unfortunately, this enthusiasm hasn’t reached the Labour party in South Tyneside, the South Shields branch of which has been suspended because of allegations of bullying and intimidation made by some of its own members.

It’s time for #GrownUpPolitics and a candidate who will work with those supporting Jeremy’s vision for a fairer country but who isn’t afraid to call out those who fall short of the goal.

South Tyneside has for too long been in the grip of one party, it’s time to shake things up with people who care about working people, but also the planet we live on; by making principled decisions for the benefit of both.

John Gerard McCabe (Labour Party)

Hebburn means everything to me. I am determined to ensure that the progress achieved for my town in the last few years continues .

I have the experience, character and know-how to achieve more for the community I live and work in.

Onward with more investment, jobs, good education for our youth in our new schools and more amenities such as the Hebbùrn hub.

I need your support and you will always have mine. Thank you.

Amy Jane Milburn (Conservative Party)
