EAST Lothian councillor Craig Hoy will represent the Conservatives in December’s General Election.

Mr Hoy, who was elected as a Haddington and Lammermuir ward member earlier this year, is the fourth candidate to be confirmed for the East Lothian seat in the election, which will take place on December 12.

Labour’s Martin Whitfield, who is the current East Lothian MP, has announced he will seek re-election while former MSP Kenny MacAskill will represent the SNP and Robert O’Riordan is representing the Liberal Democrats.
