Dick Knight has become the latest well-known figure to support Caroline Lucas.

Last week, Caroline Lucas's celebrity supporter was Dr Brian May, lead guitarist of Queen. This week, it is Dick Knight, life president of Brighton and Hove Albion and a freeman of the city. Mr Knight, who described himself as "always left-of-centre", said Ms Lucas was a "brave, principled, and intelligent" politician who deserved to be re-elected as Green MP for Brighton Pavilion. He rebutted suggestions that he should not support a Green candidate because of the party's opposition to the American Express Community Stadium at Falmer.
