CANDIDATES have been named in an election sparked by the tragic death of a candidate.

Nineteen people are vying for three seats in Southampton City Council’s Coxford ward, which is still up for grabs after the initial vote was abandoned.

Conservative candidate Graham Galton died on May 4, leading to the city council scrapping the ballot.

The new election for the Coxford ward is due to take place on June 22.

The new candidate list for Coxford is almost twice as large as the original list.
