Lisa Nandy is Frank Byers' granddaughter

Maybe I didn't get the memo, but this is news to me. It is revealed, amongst many better known family relationships, in a Daily Mail article.

For the benefit of my younger readers, who will know that Nandy is the Labour MP for Wigan, I had better point out that Frank Byers was the Liberal MP for North Dorset between 1945 and 1950. As Lord Byers he remained an influential figure in the party until his death in 1984.

Anyway, this is a clear winner of Trivial Fact of the Day.

I know who Frank Byers is - I fear this means I am no longer one of your younger readers.
