In the third and final installment of General Election 2017 videos, Adam Cantwell Corn and Alon Aviram head to Bristol East.

Labour’s Kerry McCarthy is standing for re-election as Bristol East MP and facing opposition from the Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and Greens.

Meanwhile, UKIP have decided to stand down their candidate in an effort to bolster the Conservative’s chances – and swing the seat from red to blue.

Some Bristol East residents are hopeful that this election will see a bigger turnout than ever before, while others are exasperated by politicians that promise the world and “end up doing nothing”.

Adam and Alon also visit a £3m cottage in a quaint village in the Mendip Hills which is the registered address of Bristol East’s Conservative candidate Theodora Clark, and as it turns out, it isn’t that “near Stockwood”.
