Statement from Luke Allan on the temporary suspension of campaign activity
By Luke Allan
"In light of the sad news of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh, my campaign team and I have decided to continue our suspension of all campaign activity for the remainder of this weekend.
"Losing a loved one is never easy, tragically it is a feeling that many have experienced during the last thirteen months. Unfortunately, I know this feeling well as I continue to process the death of my grandmother, who I helped care for during her brief battle with cancer last year.
"My thoughts go out to the Royal Family and those close to the Duke at this difficult time. It is important to acknowledge that the Queen has lost her husband of 73 years, and many have lost a father, grandfather, great-grandfather, friend and confidant."
