In 2010 I won the seat with majority of over 2500. I was the first MP for 80 years to represent Scunthorpe after spending an adult life time of living in the constituency. On May 7th 2015 I was re-elected with an increased majority. From 12.01am on Wednesday 3 May Parliament will dissolve and I will no longer be a Member of Parliament. 

I grew up in Leicester and attended school there before studying at the University of Hull and then King’s University College London completing my undergraduate degree and then my PGCE respectively. I taught English in a school in Hull before I moved to Sweden to also teach English. I then returned to the country to take up a position at the award winning John Leggott College in Scunthorpe, where I became vice principal and then principal before my election to Parliament.

While teaching at John Leggott I was also a local councillor for Kingsway with Lincoln Gardens and then leader of North Lincolnshire Council from 1997 - 2003. I was the first leader to hold control of the council through an election in its history. I was also the deputy chair of Yorkshire Forward from 2005 - 2007.

I have been a member of several All Party Parliamentary Groups and an officer of some - including the APPG for Education, the APPG for Skills and Employment, and the APPG for the replacement of animals in medical experimentation. I am currently a member of other APPGs that highlight good causes in Parliament.
