Student Radio Hosts Police Candidate Debate

Bailrigg FM, Lancaster University’s student radio station is hosting a debate between the candidates for Police Crime Commissioner of Lancashire on Sunday 4th November at 10.00am, which locals off campus can follow online.

(Bailrigg FM broadcasts over air only within the University boundaries).

Candidates Afzal Anwar representing the Liberal Democrats, Tim Ashton of the Conservatives and Robert Drobny representing UKIP will all be in attendance. Clive Grunshaw of the Labour Party has other campaigning engagements and therefore will not be present.

‘The News on Sunday’ is usually a topical politics show with local guests from Lancaster’s political and cultural scene, hosted by second year student Nathan Marsh. This week’s special edition of the show will invite each candidate to answer students’ regarding the upcoming elections in the 15th November.

Executive Producer of ‘The News on Sunday’, Gabriella Mansfield, a second year student in Criminology said: “This show is a great opportunity for our student radio station, it will allow the students and locals of Lancaster to engage further within these elections.”

Bailrigg FM’s Station Manager Charlie Edwards said: “These elections affect everybody and anything we as a student body can do to engage is a worth while venture. I think Gabriella and her team have done a fantastic job to organise this and I can’t wait to listen in on Sunday.”
