A BITTER row has broken out between Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell and LibDem council rival Kathy Ballard.

Kathy is tryring to get elected in the local elections on May 6. She is a County Council Candidate for Lib Dems Sovereign Ward.

But Tory MP Ansell has levelled serious accusations against her.

Caroline accused Kathy of ‘misleading’ Herald readers in a piece she had written.

Here’s Caroline: “She wrongly accused me of voting down a Lords’ amendment to the Fire Safety Bill designed to provide financial protection for leaseholders affected by unsafe cladding in our town and across the country.

“I did no such thing.

“We voted for the amendment and against the government.”

So Kathy, did you mislead us?
