Neale Hanvey said: “I’ve been contacted by over 11,000 local folks to date with some asking for assistance recovering money either owed to them, or incorrectly taken from them. As the cost-of-living increases, my team and I are determined to put as much money back in people’s pockets as we can and continue to provide an excellent service as an MP’s office.

“The amount we’ve recovered to date is equivalent to 1,761 weekly shops or 44,038 school meals.

"It forms just a small part of the work I am doing to ease the strain on my constituents.

“I may not have a magic wand, but an MP’s office is there to provide a service to the community, and I encourage any constituent in need of help to get in touch with my team and we will do all we can to help.”
