JACOB Rees-Mogg joined a Conservative canvassing team as they visited residents near Cirencester last week.

Leader of the House of Commons, Mr Rees-Mogg and his 14 year old son Peter, came to canvas residents in Siddington on Wednesday, April 7.

Cotswold District Councillor Julia Judd (pictured) said: "I was thrilled to meet them both and impressed they came up to support county council candidate Shaun Parsons and Police & Crime Commissioner candidate Chris Nelson.

"They were fantastic on the doorsteps, people were amazed and so pleased."
