A political party leader is coming to Norfolk this week to show support for a candidate standing in the upcoming election. 

Nigel Farage, leader of Reform UK, will give a speech at an election rally at Great Yarmouth Racecourse as campaigning continues for the general election. 

It follows the BBC debate between seven parties on Friday night in which Mr Farage said the party's policies include introducing stop and search to tackle knife crime.

The Reform UK rally is taking place at 7pm on Tuesday, June 11 with an admission fee of £2.50.
