Eastleigh by-election: Campaign battle enters final week


Candidates in the battle for the former seat of ex-Liberal Democrat MP Chris Huhne are entering the final week of campaigning.

Fourteen candidates are competing for the Eastleigh seat in Hampshire, in what has been called the most colourful by-election in recent history.

The vote was prompted by the resignation of Mr Huhne, when he admitted asking his then-wife, Vicky Pryce, to accept speeding points on his behalf.
