Meeting the candidates in the Copeland by-election

On Thursday people in the parliamentary constituency of Copeland will vote for a new MP.

The vacancy was created when the former Labour MP and Jeremy Corbyn critic, Jamie Reed, resigned to take up a job at the Sellafield nuclear site.

Labour have held the seat for more than 80 years but with a majority of just 2,500 over the Conservatives, Labour’s long rule is under threat.

The Daily Politics’ Jenny Kumah met the candidates.
