Comic stands as Green Party candidate

Fummey to fight for seat on Perth council

Comedian Bruce Fummey is to stand for election for the Green party.

The stand-up, who won the Scottish Comedian of the Year title in 2014, is hoping to land a seat on Perth and Kinross council, where there has never been a Green councillor before.

Fummey joined the party following the 2014 independence referendum.
