With just a few days to the general election, Queen Alex and TyneMet students put their questions to some of the candidates hoping to become MP for Tynemouth by the end of the week.

The Question Time event was hosted by Real Radio presenter, Jonathan Morrell who has quizzed quite a few politicians in his time on both radio and TV, including Sky News and ITN.

The panel was made up of Labour's Alan Campbell, Julia Erskine from the Green Party, Wendy Morton for the Conservatives and Natasha Payne from UKIP.

A show of hands at the end of the hour-long debate showed that the vast majority of the students will be casting their vote in the election - but they weren't asked who they'd be voting for!
