Watch your Doncaster election hopefuls get put through their paces, in an exclusive video of Saturday’s heated debate.

Held at Doncaster’s Little Theatre, Labour candidate Rosie Winterton went head to head with fellow Doncaster central candidates, Chris Hodgson of UKIP, Mev Akram of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition as well as John Brennan of the English Democrats who was standing in for Doncaster Central candidate David Burnett and Don Valley Parliamentary candidate for the Conservatives, Carl Jackson.

The lively debate was attended by around 85 audience members, some of whom posed questions to the panel around topics such as council cuts, immigration, the NHS, the economy and austerity, foreign policy, housing and Doncaster’s image.

The most divisive question of the night focused on overcrowding and immigration in Hexthorpe, something which an audience member said led to people in the area feeling ‘abandoned’.
