One of the country’s most prominent politicians has been forced to pull out of a speaking event in Horncastle this Friday.

John Bercow MP, the Speaker of the House of Commons, was due to speak at Stanhope Hall on Friday in an event organised by the town’s U3A group.

However, the group has confirmed Mr Bercow has cancelled his visit because he has told them he needs to be in London instead.
