Former rivals put THAT vote behind them for visit to life-saving charities

They may once have been political adversaries, but this week Lucy Frazer and Heidi Allen came together to visit the lifesaving helicopter medics of Magpas and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Ms Frazer and Ms Allen were embroiled in controversy in 2013 when the former was elected to stand for the South East Cambridgeshire parliamentary seat, despite allegations that votes had been miscounted and it was Ms Allen who should have been elected.
The defeated Ms Allen has since been elected to stand for the South Cambridgeshire seat at May’s General Election but the controversy has raged on, with Ms Frazer questioned about the incident at the first hustings event held in Swaffham Bulbeck last week.
But it was all smiles this week as the duo were joined by representatives of Magpas and the East Anglian Air Ambulance to find out more about their work.
During the visits, the candidates were introduced to the specialist doctors and paramedics on shift and given a detailed insight into the care given by both organisations.
