Mayoral candidate wants to tackle inequality in Bristol

Geoff Gollop was Lord Mayor last year and hopes to become elected mayor of Bristol Credit: ITV West

Senior Councillor Geoff Gollop has been selected as the Conservative candidate for Bristol's elected mayor. Voting will take place on 15th November. He sees education and transport as two major issues but also wants to tackle inequality.

"I'm going to confront a key issue which I believe is inequality in the city. It is quite outrageous that we have areas of the most deprived areas of the country adjacent to some of the wealthiest areas in the country. Bristol can only grow and prosper if we actually confront that".
