SUFFOLK villagers vented their fury today after it emerged a British National Party representative will contest an election in the county for the first time.
Paul Goodchild will stand for the far-right party in a by-election in Yoxford on February 5.
And the move is designed to "test the water" for future forays into the county's political scene.
Jenny Kirtley, of Sibton, said: "It's absolutely disgraceful. It would be horrific to have anybody like that in these little villages."
