The success of the Green Party and the emerging national election results picture brought a reaction from Labout's Norwich South MP Clive Lewis.

He said the party was being dragged in four different directions.

"We've got customs union, hard Brexit, revoke and the people's vote," he said.

"If we don't sort ourselves out the head is going to pop off and the four horses are going to gallop off in four different directions elsewhere."

More work is needed to help homeless people in Norwich, despite a fall in rough sleeper numbers, local election candidates have said.

Helping the homeless
Jake Humphrey

Numbers of homeless people in Norwich have dropped from 34 to 21 between 2016 and 2018, although in 2010 the figure was recorded as four.

The number of city households living in temporary accommodation has increased from 21 to 50 in the same period.

A homelessness strategy for the city, drawn up last year, found family breakdowns led to many people sleeping on the streets.

Labour holds 31 seats on the city council, with five for the Green Party and three for the Liberal Democrats.
