ELECTION: Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn in Maidstone today - details

Friday 6th December 2019

THERE is heavy security this morning at the Maidstone Studios in the lead up to the Boris Johnson Vs Jeremy Corbyn election debate.

Police are in place on site before the debate this evening on BBC1.

The one hour programme starting at 8.30pm is being broadcast from studio two and is hosted by presenter and former BBC political editor Nick Robinson.

It will be the last time the Tory and Labour leaders share a stage before polling day on 12 December.

Their policies on Brexit, the NHS and the economy are likely to come under scrutiny, as are issues of trust and character.

According to the BBC, Mr Johnson and Mr Corbyn will face questions from about 100 members of the public in Maidstone, Kent, and from those who have submitted them via the BBC News website.
