OXFORD City Council’s former leader Alex Hollingsworth is making another attempt to become a councillor again.

Mr Hollingsworth is the Labour candidate in the Carfax by-election which will be held on September 4.

He stood for election in the same ward in the May elections but was narrowly beaten by Green candidate Ruthi Brandt.

Mr Hollingsworth was leader of the city council between 2002 and 2006.
