SOUTH Cambs District Council (SCDC) is to re-run an election for tenant members of the new local housing association's shadow board.

Cllr Simon Edwards said: "It has become apparent that through an administrative error, some voting papers have been sent out to a number of people who are no longer tenants of the council, either because they have moved away, given up their tenancy or have passed away.

"We apologise in particular to the relatives of those people for any distress this has caused, and to tenants in general for this inconvenience.

"Any election we conduct must be a robust and credible process, and so we have taken the decision to re-run the election."
