Archant

It is set to be one of the closest elections in years.

Three candidates are contesting the North Norfolk seat at the General Election on June 8 – Stephen Burke of Labour, Norman Lamb of the Liberal Democrats and James Wild, of the Conservatives.

We caught up with them at a packed hustings meeting in the Parish Church in Cromer on Friday night.

We asked them: If they could only achieve one thing in Parliament if elected, what would it be?

And: Which of the other North Norfolk candidates would you vote for if you weren’t allowed to vote for yourself?

Some of the answers may surprise you…
