To help voters get to know parliamentary candidates before the election on Thursday, June 8, we’ve been talking to some of them for 80 seconds.

Meet Labour’s Hornchurch and Upminster nominee Rocky Gill who hopes to become the constituency’s next MP.

Mr Gill, who voted for Brexit, says he has a “proven” track record of meeting community needs and wants to be a “strong” champion for people.
