George Galloway has blamed a tweet about Blackburn instead of Bradford on his feed this morning on a hacker. The tweet read: "Welcome to the 6000 new followers. I will try to live up to your expectations. Shattered but happy after the Blackburn triumph."
The former Respect MP George Galloway has announced he's to stand in the Bradford by-election. He's giving a press conference outside the city hall this afternoon - and hoping to replace the MP Marsha Singh who's retiring due to ill health.
