Political opponents went head to head in front of the television cameras as Mustard TV programme This Week aired a Norfolk County Council election special.

Voters will go to the polls on Thursday, May 4 in the County Hall elections, with all 84 divisions across Norfolk up for grabs.

And, on the show, representatives from five political parties had their say on why people should put a tick next to their candidates' names.

A wide range of issues are discussed in the programme, including the Norwich Northern Distributor Road, children's services, cuts to the fire service, the state of the council's finances, council tax increases, defections and whether UKIP still has a role to play following the Brexit vote.

Conservative Cliff Jordan, Labour's George Nobbs, Liberal Democrat James Joyce, Green Richard Bearman and UKIP's Paul Smyth answer the questions on the show. The hour-long show touched on whether the so-called rainbow alliance could be revived, the state of roadworks around Norwich and what help could be given to carers.
