A Sidmothian satirist is offering East Devon residents the chance to ‘meet your MP’ – in the form a cabbage sporting a blue ribbon.

Alex Ritchie claimed that the vegetable’s ‘spokesman’, Sir Hugo Swire, was unavailable so he was sat with it on Sidmouth’s Esplanade.

The Conservative MP was re-elected for a fifth term with a majority of more than 8,000 votes.
