ELECTION VIDEO: Candidates on energy and the environment – part two

In this third of a series of five video interviews, the candidates in the Berwick constituency share their views on climate change, the future of power generation and protecting Northumberland’s countryside from developers.

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.

How would the candidates protect the natural beauty of Northumberland and its tourist industry from developers?

How would the candidates protect the natural beauty of Northumberland and its tourist industry from developers?

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

Monday’s video dealt with windfarms, subsidies and energy efficiency and yesterday’s tackled the EU, foreign aid, privatisation, HS2 and a rising population putting pressure on services like the NHS and housing.

Tomorrow and on Friday, other issues covered include fracking, jobs and local government.
