Gorleston pensioner Bosco Tann, who is standing for the British National Party (BNP) in Great Yarmouth, said one of his local concerns is the level of crime in the town.

'Crime is a threat to us all,' he said. 'Anti-social behaviour, vandalism and burglaries blight neighbourhoods. We need to adopt a zero-tolerance approach to crime. Prisons must be made more austere and criminals should serve their full sentences.'

Born and brought up in the town, he has lived in the constituency all his life.

He said he is opposed to servicemen being sent to Afghanistan which he described as an 'unwinnable war which has nothing to do with Britain or British interests.' and wants British troops brought home to stop any further waste of young lives.

On immigration he said: 'The massive influx of migrant workers into Great Yarmouth is having a detrimental effect on wage levels and job prospects of local people, as well as putting extra pressure on health, housing and education services. We need to leave the EU - not only that we can once again protect our borders - but also to use the billions a year we would save to restore the NHS and provide adequate pensions.'
