Brodie becomes face of vote campaign
A hairdresser has become the face of a campaign to encourage people to vote in the county council elections.
Leicestershire will go to the polls on May 2.
Brodie Cowlam, of Burbage, is one of seven residents featured on posters encouraging people to take an interest in local issues and vote.
Brodie said: "A lot of people think elections are boring and they're not interested in councils. But the county council has a major role in many of the things my customers are talking about, such as education and the roads.

"If people want to have their say on these issues, they should vote, rather than just talking about it."
The campaign is supported by Professor Colin Copus, director of De Montfort University's local government research unit.
He said: "Voters should think about what is happening locally, listen to what the candidates say about what they would do for the area, how they intend to run the council and how they would deliver services."
All of the council's 55 seats will be up for election. The list of candidates will be available on April 9.
