Despite saying last week he would not be running, Mr Pitcher has now said he will stand as an independent candidate, focusing primarily on Brexit.
Planned to support Brexit candidate

However, Mr Wiltshire will now not stand after the Brexit Party pulled its candidates in constituencies won by Conservatives in 2017.
