With the election battle heating up, constituents in Norfolk will have the chance to test the mettle of their MP candidates at a series of upcoming events.

Hustings are taking place at a number of venues in north Norfolk this month, where people will have the opportunity to ask questions and hear about the policies of their parliamentary hopefuls.

Latest polls suggest North Norfolk will likely be a battle between Conservative candidate Duncan Baker, who has been in the post since 2019, and Liberal Democrat Steffan Aquarone.

Yougov data suggests there could be just a handful of votes in it, with Mr Aquarone currently expected to win with a 36.9pc majority compared to 35.3pc of the vote share going to the Tory hopeful.

Other candidates standing at the 2024 General Election for North Norfolk include Labour's Cathy Cordiner-Achenbach, Elizabeth Anne Dixon for the Green Party and Jason Patchett for Reform.
