CONSTITUENTS who think South Staffordshire MP Gavin Williamson deserves an award have until tomorrow to cast their votes in an online poll.

Tory MP Mr Williamson, the Government's Education Secretary who has come under fire for presiding over the controversial awarding of A-level results that left some students with much-lower grades than they deserved, is among politicians shortlisted for an MP of the Year Award.

Former Prime Minister Theresa May and former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, are also among the nominees in the running for the award being offered by UK charity The Patchwork Foundation - which aims to strengthen democracy.

Voting for the competition, sponsored by KPMG, closes at midnight on Monday August 31. To vote click here.

Mr Williamson, MP for Kinver and Stourton areas, said he was "sorry for the distress" caused to young people and their parents after making a u-turn on the awarding of results which were first determined by a controversial algorithm leaving some students disadvantaged.

Despite announcing that results would be switched to the grades predicted by teachers, there have been calls for him to resign or be sacked ever since.

Anyone who thinks Mr Williamson has been doing a good job as MP and deserves recognition for his work can vote for him online on The Patchwork Foundation's website or click the link above.
