NEXT month’s General Election is fast approaching, and the candidates for the four main parties have been announced.

Here is our rundown on who is standing for each party:

CONSERVATIVE Party - Robin Walker

Robin Walker is attempting to be re-elected as MP for Worcester, having held the seat since 2010 when he beat Labour MP Mike Foster.

Since becoming MP for the city Mr Walker has held a number of junior ministerial positions.

He was under-secretary of state for leaving the European Union under Theresa May's premiership, and is undersecretary for Northern Ireland and Scotland under Boris Johnson.

Before becoming an MP he worked in financial services recruitment.

2017 Result: 24,713 votes - Majority: 2,490

LABOUR Party - Lynn Denham

Lynn Denham is Labour’s choice to contest the Worcester seat and attempt to overturn Robin Walker’s majority of nearly 2,500 and become only the second Labour MP to represent the constituency in its history.

Mrs Denham has lived in Worcester for more than 30 years and has worked as a hospital pharmacist and senior NHS manager.

She has also been a city councillor since 2012 and is involved in community projects such as the Friends of Fort Royal Park and Worcester Dementia Action Alliance.

2017 Result: 22,223 votes

LIBERAL Democrat Party - Stephen Kearney

Stephen Kearney is returning as Lib Dem PPC for Worcester, having stood in the 2017 general election, where he came third.

A trained actor and singer who runs a grooming business, Mr Kearney was described as a “breath of fresh air” by his party in 2017.

Mr Kearney also co-founded the UK’s Youth Parliament movement and worked with the Cabinet Office in a special project to train 5,000 volunteers. He has also appeared in a number of short films and stage performances.

2017 Result: 1,757 votes

GREEN Party - Louis Stephen

Mr Stephen, a city councillor and chair of the local authority’s policy and resources committee, is standing as the Green Party’s candidate for Worcester for the fourth time, having stood in 2017, 2015 and 2010.

The Worcester Green Party pitched Mr Stephen as “another Green voice at the heart of Westminster” if he were to be elected as the city’s MP and he said the party “must stand to be heard” on climate change.

In 2017, the Green Party finished fifth, behind UKIP, the Lib Dems, Labour and the Conservatives.

2017 Result: 1,211 votes.

There was a Brexit Party candidate due to stand in Worcester at next month’s election, Martin Potter, but following Nigel Farage’s announcement that his party would not contest any seats won by the Conservatives in 2017, he has been withdrawn.

The final candidate in Worcester is Luke Shaw who is representing the Renew Party, which was formed in 2016 to "reform existing political structures" while not conforming to a left or right wing ideology.

*Luke Shaw has announced this morning he has withdrawn from the running
