AN independent candidate says the introduction of a CPZ where he lives and a lack of trust in the three main parties spurred him on to stand in the general election.

Rohen Kapur says the imposition of a CPZ in Woodside was a large factor in him standing and that he will hand power back to the people by letting his manifesto be determined by voters - policies would be decided after debate and a vote.

Dr Kapur said: "I need to listen to what concerns you, rather than have a big manifesto that dictates to you what I am here for, because at the end of the day an Independent reports back to the people who elected and voted them in, and not to any political party."

Dr Kapur says his one pledge is that he would hold a referendum on the continued membership of the European Union.

He added: "I have one request, that you use your vote. Don't say you are not going to vote because nothing changes.

"30,000 people in Hornsey and Wood Green didn't vote last time and if I could have anything, I would want all 78000 people in the constituency to put a cross in a box next to whichever candidate they chose."
