Two local politicians discussed national and international issues during a visit to Bishop Wilton recently.

East Yorkshire MP, Sir Greg Knight and Euro-MP for Yorkshire, Timothy Kirkhope, met Bishop Wilton residents and other guests at a special evening organised by Wolds Weighton Conservatives.

Sir Greg gave an update on Britain’s economic outlook and detailed the latest progress concerning the implementation of government policies, whilst Timothy Kirkhope explained what was being done to deal with the unprecedented number of refugees arriving in Europe.

Afterwards both Sir Greg and Timothy answered questions.

The event was held at the home of Mrs Kirsten de Morgan. Also present were East Riding Councillors Andy Burton, Kay West JP and David Rudd.
