Video: Voting takes place in Rochester and Strood by-election as Ukip seek victory


Voters in Rochester and Strood go to the polls today in a by-election which could see the election of a second Ukip MP. In a campaign dominated by immigration, Mark Reckless is the strong favourite to regain the Kent constituency having defected from the Tories and then stepped down to fight the seat under Ukip colours. Victory for Nigel Farage's party would be another wounding blow for David Cameron whose hopes of regaining No 10 in next year's general election are threatened by Ukip's surge in the polls.
