A former Conservative Welsh assembly member has announced that he will stand as an independent candidate in the general election.
Peter Rogers is a councillor and farmer on Anglesey
Peter Rogers represented the North Wales regional seat in the assembly from 1999 until he was deselected by the Tories for the 2003 election.
Mr Rogers, a 65-year-old farmer who has resigned from the party, will contest the Anglesey parliamentary seat.
He was elected an Anglesey councillor under no party banner last year.

Labour: 11,906 votes (35%)

Mr Rogers fell out with the Conservatives after he was placed seventh on the party's list of candidates for the north Wales regional seat.
That meant he had no chance of retaining his seat as an AM under the list system.
On Wednesday, he told BBC Radio Wales he was confident and ready for a battle.
Labour's Albert Owen became Anglesey's MP in 2001, taking the seat from Plaid Cymru with a slim majority of 800.
The parliamentary seat has changed hands between three parties over the past half-century.
Labour held it from 1951 to 1979, then by the Tories until 1987.
Plaid Cymru's assembly group leader Ieuan Wyn Jones is Anglesey's AM, and he was also the MP from 1987 before giving up the seat in 2001.
