The High Court has rejected a bid by a disqualified Labour candidate to clear his name, reports The Western Mail (p5).

Brian Loveridge, 58, had won a council by-election in Rhondda in 1995, beating the Plaid Cymru candidate by one vote.

After the election however a complaint was filed under the Representation of the People Act, which claimed that Mr Loveridge had broken election rules by appearing in a BBC broadcast days before the election, without the approval of the rival candidate.

An election court last year banned Mr Loveridge from voting or standing in an election for five years. The High Court rejected his appeal.
