WHAT THE PAPERS SAY

The people of Rochdale, Heywood, and Middleton are suffering under a poor Labour administration and an awful Tory Government. It's not just the Liberal Democrats saying this, you need only read the coverage our borough gets in the local, regional, and national press.

Our local services are badly run, our NHS and public transport are underfunded, and our police are not getting the support they need to tackle problems locally. Here are just a few of the problems we face, as seen by journalists.
