A British National Party member has thrown his hat into the ring for the Gospel Oak by-election.
Steve Dorman, from Somers Town, has contested Hampstead Town and Kentish Town wards in the past and is now set to challenge for the vacant Camden Council seat.
Mr Dorman, a former builder, has pledged to fight for better services for the disabled after he was rendered wheelchair-bound by illness.
He is also campaigning for more money for health services and the Royal Free Hospital.
The 65-year-old said: “I have got nothing to do with racism, I am not anti anything really. Despite what some of the papers say we are not all fascists.”
