Constituency Tories in Suffolk Coastal have broken the mould and shortlisted two local candidates in the battle to succeed John Gummer as the district's MP.

The party is giving an opportunity to local people to compete against four other candidates from David Cameron's own party shortlist.

Hugo de Burgh, who lives in Woodbridge, is director of the China Media Centre and professor of journalism at the University of Westminster. He is honorary professor of journalism at Shandong University and has written a book on investigative journalism.

The other candidate with local connections is Sophie Stanbrook, who is running the election campaign of Mr Gummer's son Ben in the Ipswich constituency.

Coastal Tories have also short-listed Kay Mason, a businesswoman and farmer from Norfolk who fought Norwich North at the 2005 General Election,
