Statement from Derek Twigg

With great sadness, I announce that my wife Mary passed away peacefully at home last night.

I now need to take some time to be with my family at this very difficult time.

Halton Labour will continue to run my General Election campaign and should you wish to raise any issues or have questions please don’t hesitate to contact my agent, Andrea Wall, by calling 07544688530 or emailing

Finally, on behalf of my family, thank you for the many kind messages of support that we have received over the past few months during Mary’s illness, they have been very much appreciated.

Halton Parliamentary Candidate for the Labour Party
