THE candidates vying to win the marginal seat of Worcester were put on the spot by pupils and audience members at a city hustings event.

Taking place in The Studio at Nunnery Wood High School, the hustings saw candidates Lynn Denham for Labour, Stephen Kearney for Liberal Democrats, independent Martin Potter, Louis Stephen for the Green Party and Robin Walker for the Conservatives all go head-to-head.

Candidates took difficult questions on a wide range of subjects including their party's Brexit policies, why their leaders had the personal qualities to be a Prime Minister, and on climate change.

More than 200 were in attendance at the event on Tuesday night, and listened to the lively debate chaired by the BBC's James Pearson.

After the event, the Spetchley Road-based school's account tweeted: "Thank you to everyone who attended the election hustings tonight.

"Great turnout and the debate got heated."
