Plaid Cymru has selected a firefighter to be a candidate at next year’s UK General Election.
Beci Newton will stand in Caerphilly after being selected by Plaid’s constituency party.
Mrs Newton said: “So many people are disengaged from politics because they feel that ‘all politicians are the same’. I want to change that view and be the alternative for people.
“I want to represent the people of Caerphilly and talk with them about the issues affecting their lives, to bring about real change and restore people’s faith in politics.
Mrs Newton lives in Llanbradach, with her husband Matt and children, William, four, and five-month-old Elin.
