Ex-TV presenter Lynda Bryans is not standing as UUP candidate in Westminster elections

By Lindsay Fergus

Former TV presenter Lynda Bryans will not be standing as a UUP candidate in the forthcoming Westminster elections.

Party leader Mike Nesbitt revealed last night that his wife would not be entering politics - at this stage.

He said: "Linda may stand at some point in the future but today I think she's content to honour her commitments to Belfast Metropolitan College."

Ms Bryans is a journalism tutor on the National Council for the Training of Journalists-accredited course at the college.

Mr Nesbitt has also said that he will not be standing in any constituency in the 2015 Westminister elections.
