A meeting's being held tonight, 23 July, to promote a campaign for an elected mayor in Bath and North East Somerset, similar to the one in Bristol.

A petition has been started which, if it attracts 6,900 names of voters in the area, will trigger a referendum on the issue.

Supporters are meeting at the BRLSI in Queen Square in Bath at 7pm to discuss the campaign.
