The Green party has announced that it will be standing in each of the 23 seats being contested for Bristol city council next month. The party is hoping to build on its current tally of two councillors, campaigning for better public transport and more eco-friendly homes. Voting is on 2 May.

So far eight independents have also said they'll stand.
