Bradford East MP David Ward has been recognised as one of the most enthusiastic MPs to frequently mention their constituency – and the MP who mentions Bradford the most – on Twitter.

At the Parliamentary Internet, Communications and Technology Forum Twitter Awards 2014 Mr Ward was recognised as being one the MPs who most talks about their constituency on Twitter.

Under the category ‘The Local Yokel Award’ Mr Ward came seventh out of all the MPs in the country and was the only Bradford MP in the top ten.

The Liberal Democrat said: “I’m an MP in Bradford and to me it’s only natural that I should promote the many wonderful and amazing things about our city.”
