The resurgent Liberal Democrats are expected to take the Welsh seat.

The banana skin by-election came after a successful re-call petition against the sitting Conservative MP Chris Davies.

He’d been convicted of fiddling his expenses.

Despite the re-call, Brexiter Mr Davies, 51, was chosen again by his local party to fight the seat.

The Lib Dem candidate, former social worker Jane Dodds, needs to overturn a Tory

majority of 8,038 – a swing of nearly ten per cent.

Mr Johnson visited Brecon this week as part of his tour to the UK’s four nations.
