On Saturday evening, 2nd May, Gavin Barwell (Conservative) and Sarah Jones (Labour) went head-to-head for the final debate of the campaign in Croydon Central. Hosted by the Croydon Citizen at Matthew’s Yard, the event was attended by more than a hundred people and chaired by Citizen politics editor Tom Black.

Topics included education, health, housing, the European Union, taxes and the economy. Both candidates were spirited and forceful throughout the evening, answering questions and points raised by an animated – and sometimes aggressive – audience.

Nevertheless, you can listen to the full debate online as a podcast thanks to Croydon Radio. Click here to access it.
