THE Lib Dems are hoping to use voter anger at Nadine Dorries to take her seat at the by-election.

Despite saying she would quit, Ms Dorries says she will cling on until she has finished probing why she was left off Boris Johnson’s list of peerages.

Campaignin­g in the Tory MP’S Mid Bedfordshi­re seat, deputy leader Daisy Cooper met angry voters.

She said: “People want to send a message and that’s our rallying call.”

THE two students killed in the Nottingham attacks can be heard on a CCTV’S audio device asking: “Why, why, why?”

A man who lives close to the spot where 19-year-olds Grace O’malleykuma­r and Barnaby Webber died said the heartbreak­ing pleas emerged as police checked his security camera.

Although the attack took place outside his CCTV’S coverage he said that the device recorded the victims’ voices. The horrified man, who asked not to be named, explained that he was unaware his camera contained the audio until the police visit.

He said: “You can hear them saying ‘why, why, why?’

It came as former Nottingham University student Valdo Calocane, 31, appeared at Nottingham Magistrate­s Court yesterday facing charges of murder and attempted murder, using the alias Adam Mendes.

Barnaby and Grace were stabbed to death in the city centre in the early hours of Tuesday.

His Vauxhall Vivaro van is believed to have been stolen in the attack and later struck three pedestrian­s in the city centre.

One of the victims, factory worker Wayne Birkett, 58, is now stable in hospital after regaining consciousn­ess.

Two other casualties were named as Marcin Gawronski and Sharon Miller. Survivor Marcin, 40, was yesterday seen out walking with a limp and is thought to have been released from hospital on Wednesday.

He also appeared to have injuries to his head and left arm. He said: “Police have told me not to talk. I was hit by the van. I’m feeling OK now.” Sharon, 44, was seen arriving home on crutches with a support boot on one leg.

She declined to comment.

Sharon’s husband Martin said: “She’s too traumatise­d to speak. She’s been lucky. I’d like to thank the emergency services for everything they did.”

Mourners yesterday continued to lay flowers on the road where Grace, from Woodford Green, Essex, who represente­d England at hockey, and keen
