Victoria Atkins Parliamentary Candidate

About Victoria

I consider myself lucky to have both northern and southern roots. I was raised in a market town in Lancashire, about the size of Horncastle.   I went to school in Blackpool and could hear the screams from the Pleasure Beach whilst sitting in class!

I was the first member of my family to go to university, reading law at Cambridge University. I wanted to be a criminal barrister, so went to the Capital of Crime - London - to practice. I specialise in prosecuting serious organised crime.  My husband, Paul, and I escaped city life when we moved to Gloucestershire, to live in a village.  .     

Paul is a Managing Director of a British food company.   We like to spend what little spare time we have going to concerts, travelling, horseriding and running around after our son, Monty.

Victoria was first elected as MP for Louth & Horncastle in May 2015 with a record majority and is now the candidate for the 8th of June 2017 General Election
