Labour Party chief whip Rosie Winterton MP gathered signatures from Guiseley shoppers on Saturday morning as part of a campaign against rising fuel prices.

She joined her party’s local prospective parliamentary candidate Jamie Hanley outside Morrisons supermarket to garner support for restrictions on gas and electricity rises.

“We’re highlighting the cost of Cameron, having discovered that people in Yorkshire and Humberside are some £1,800 a year worse off under his Government,” Miss Winterton said.

Solicitor Mr Hanley will stand for Labour in the Pudsey constituency in next year’s General Election and said local people told him their main concerns were job insecurity and rising bills.

“I can take you to homes where people have to choose between heating and eating,” Mr Hanley said.
