One of the UK's leading politicians is visiting north Norfolk next week during an open-top bus tour of the country ahead of May's county council elections.

UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage is touring the country between now and April 12 in support of his party's candidates, reaching East Anglia on Wednesday and Thursday, April 10 and 11.

He will be in Cambridgeshire on the morning of April 10 for a walkabout in Peterborough town centre, from where he moves to Corby, Kettering, Huntingdon, St Ives and Ramsey.

He finishes his day in Holt, with a walkabout at 5pm and a public meeting at Holt Community Centre at 7pm.

On April 11 he will be in Hertfordshire, for an 11am walkabout in Hertford, before moving on to Buckinghamshire.

Stuart Agnew, the party's regional MEP, said: 'This will be the first such election in which most voters will find that they have a UKIP candidate when they get to polling stations or open postal votes.'
