In this first of a series of five video interviews, the candidates in the Berwick constituency share their views on windfarms, subsidies and energy efficiency.

The Gazette interviewed all six candidates contesting the seat – Nigel Coghill-Marshall (Ukip), Scott Dickinson (Labour), Neil Humphrey (English Democrats), Julie Pörksen (Liberal Democrat), Rachael Roberts (Green) and Anne-Marie Trevelyan (Conservative) – and asked the same set of questions, which were sent in by our readers.

Northumberland is the area with the most installed onshore wind in the North East.

The candidates were given the topics in advance, but not the questions themselves, and had a minute to answer each question.

Today’s video deals with energy and the environment and over the coming week, other issues covered include climate change, fracking, planning and development, public services, privatisation, the NHS, the EU, foreign aid, jobs and local government.
