Welwyn Hatfield Labour man honoured by reaction

Mike Hobday, Welwyn Hatfield’s Labour candidate has arrived at the count ahead of the result being announced.

Speaking to the WHT he said: “I’m a little bit tired to be honest, I’m obviously hoping to win and I’m looking forward to the result.

“I’ve been really touched and honoured by people today who have come up to me and told me they have voted for me.”

Mike had spent some of the day driving around the borough broadcasting a “vote for Mike Hobday” message.

He added it had a modern twist as the message was on repeat on his iPhone.
