Voting appeal.

A church of England bishop was taking out adverts in his local newspapers today urging electors to register their votes or run the risk of letting "undesirable characters" gain seats.

The Rt Rev Dr John Sentamu, Bishop of Birmingham, urged people to exercise their democratic rights in Thursday's local and European elections or face the possibility of "unrepresentative" parties doing well at the polls.

His message ( headlined For God's Sake Birmingham Use Your Vote! ( was to run today and tomorrow in editions of the city's Evening Mail and Birmingham Metro newspapers.

The advert warns: "By not voting you run the risk of short-changing our city."
