Campaign group St Albans for Europe have told the Herts Advertiser they will be backing Lib Dem Daisy Cooper in the General Election.

The organisation, which was set up following last year’s referendum, announced they will be supporting the Liberal Democrats on June 8.

Chair Fiona McAndrew said: “We have been impressed by her pro-European stance, she seems really organised and committed.”

The group will be leafletting and hope to hold events for Ms Cooper, and say they have already had a positive reaction from their members.

In March, members of the group went to London to join a 100,000-strong crowd protesting the triggering of Article 50.
