The by-election will fill the vacancy left by the death of former council leader Keith Johnson.

The candidates, in alphbetical order, are: Jen Emery (Labour), Tony Nash (Conservative), David Ramsbotham (UKIP) and Andreas Yiasimi (Liberal Democrat.)

Here they explain briefly why people should vote for them:

●Jen Emery: “I am standing as a fresh voice for Cromer on a council dominated by Tories and LibDems, and with very few female councillors.

“I fought to save jobs at the crab factory, and against the increased parking charges hitting local families and businesses.”

●Tony Nash: “I feel strongly about lack of facilities for young people, especially in the sports arena.

“While Cromer is not regarded as a major growth town, there should be active dialogue to promote new businesses, and adding to the successful tourist industry.”

●David Ramsbotham: “The root cause of all our problems, be it the ambulance service, tourist promotions or parking charges, is the lack of money.

“Central government does not care about the people of Cromer but prefers to waste money overseas - over £80,000,000 per day.”

●Andreas Yiasimi: “I will dedicate every second to the wonderful people that have shown so much love and support throughout this campaign.

“It’s time for change on how we view local elections because it directly affects the place where we live.”

Voting will be from 7am until 10pm at the Methodist Church Hall and Cromer Community Centre where the count is taking place.

A result is expected to be declared just before midnight.
