Polling day in Rochester and Strood

Voters are going to the polls in Rochester and Strood on Thursday. Thirteen people are running to be the area's MP. The by-election was called after Conservative Mark Reckless defected to the UK Independence Party. Voting lasts from 07:00 GMT until 22:00 GMT. The result is due early on Friday. Mr Reckless won the Kent seat for the Conservatives in 2010 with 49.2% of the vote. Labour came second with 28.5%, followed by the Lib Dems, the English Democrats and Green Party. Mr Reckless is standing for UKIP against Conservative Kelly Tolhurst, Naushabah Khan for Labour, Geoff Juby for the Lib Dems and Clive Gregory of the Green Party. Also standing are Hairy Knorm Davidson of the Official Monster Raving Loony Party, Independents Mike Barker, Christopher Challis, Stephen Goldsbrough and Charlotte Rose; Jayda Fransen of Britain First, Nick Long of People Before Profit and Dave Osborn of the Patriotic Socialist Party. Full details of the results as they come in - and the reaction - will be on the BBC News website and the BBC News Channel through the night. There will be a by-election special on BBC One with Andrew Neil from 23:35 GMT on Thursday.

Labour will improve buses with local powers E-mail
Dearne News
John Healey MP says the bus service in South Yorkshire is not good enough, so he's backing Labour's plan for greater local control.

Speaking in the Commons last week, I said giving cities and regions London-style powers to make bus services cheaper, more frequent and more reliable is exactly what we need in Rotherham and Barnsley.

Many people rely on buses, and the poorest need them the most. But the Government have cut bus funding by 17% in the last three years and 1,300 routes have gone as a result.

Recently I've been involved in several campaigns to keep local services where bus companies planned to scrap or change routes because they weren't profitable. We've had some success in Wath, Rawmarsh, Wickersley and Thurnscoe and I'm currently fighting for the number 3 between Ravenfield and Wickersley to be brought back.
