A WESTON woman who stood against UKIP leader Nigel Farage, failed in her bid to win a seat on the European Parliament.

Rachel Ling, who dressed up as an Edwardian suffragist during campaigning, represented the YOURvoice party in the South East because the party was not contesting the South West.

Despite labelling the group ‘pioneers’ in the run-up to the election, Ms Ling’s efforts were unable to sway voters, with the party gaining just 0.13 per cent of the vote.
