A candidate who lost out on a seat after lots were drawn will try his luck again at an upcoming by-election.

Dan Ozarow is one of four contenders for the vacant seat in Borehamwood Kenilworth ward after Labour councillor Kumail Jaffer resigned at the beginning of this year.

Dr Ozarow tied with his own party colleague Mr Jaffer on 819 votes after the elections in May 2019, and lots had to be drawn to determine a winner - Mr Jaffer won.

But after Mr Jaffer's resignation to take up a journalism role in Scotland, an unexpected opportunity to represent the ward has arisen.

Labour will be campaigning hard to keep the seat they won from the Tories in May, but the Conservatives, Liberal Democrats, and Green Party will be battling them all the way.

The Tories, who currently dominate the Hertsmere Borough Council chamber with 29 out of the 39 seats, and have one of the three seats in Kenilworth ward, have put forward Brett Rosehill as their candidate.

This is Mr Rosehill's first time standing as a councillor.

Andy Lewis, who stood as a Lib Dem candidate but failed to win in Borehamwood Hillside ward in May 2019, will stand for the Lib Dems again, but this time in Kenilworth.

John Humphries, who ran as the Green Party's Hertsmere member of parliament candidate in December's general election, has been elected as the Greens' candidate.

Each candidate will be profiled between now and the election, which takes place on Thursday February 13.

Only those living in Kenilworth ward are eligible to vote.

The deadline for registering to vote is January 28.
