CLAIRE Perry has announced on Twitter that she will not be seeking reelection.

Claire Perry O'Neill ✔ @claireperrymp 1/2: I have written today to my Constituency Chairman to say I will not be seeking reselection as our candidate at the next Election. It has been the privilege of my life to serve the people of the Devizes Constituency for 9 yrs and I am proud of what we have achieved together.

She adds: "I have also been clear that I remain in full support of our PM and his brave Brexit strategy as I can see no alternative if we want to honour the Referendum result."

Her constituency includes Tidworth, Bulford, Durrington and Pewsey.

Ms Perry took a leave of absence earlier this year to care for a family member.
