The first of six meetings across Norfolk to give disabled people and their families a say in the general election will be held in Great Yarmouth today.

The Norfolk Coalition of Disabled People debate at the Kings Centre in Queen's Anne Road is due to feature Labour candidate Tony Wright, Conservative Brandon Lewis and Liberal Democrat Simon Partridge.

As well as quizzing the three politicians, today's debate will also hear about the disabled group's own “election manifesto” which it wants to put to the candidates.

Today's meeting takes place from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

The other five meetings involving election candidates will take place in Watton's Queens Hall tomorrow, the NORA project office in King's Lynn on April 27, North Walsham Comm-unity Centre on April 28, Norwich's Forum on April 29 and Long Stratton Leisure Centre on May 4.
