Election 2014: Voters in Basildon give their views

The Conservatives have lost control of four councils in south Essex following voting in Thursday's local elections.

Though UKIP did not take control of any local authorities, the Tories suffered losses to UKIP in Basildon, Castle Point and Southend.

It leaves those authorities - along with Brentwood - with no overall control.

Mike Sergeant spoke to voters in Basildon about the party's surge.
