In this second of a series of five video interviews, the candidates in the Berwick constituency share their views on the EU, foreign aid, privatisation, HS2 and a rising population putting pressure on services like the NHS and housing.

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.

The re-privatisation of the East Coast Mainline has refocused attention on the ownership of the railways.

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

Yesterday’s video dealt with windfarms, subsidies and energy efficiency and over the coming week, other issues covered include climate change, fracking, planning and development, jobs and local government.
