The Labour candidates have been announced for the Dagenham and Rainham and Hornchurch and Upminster constituencies.

Jon Cruddas, who has been MP for Dagenham and Rainham since 2001, will once again stand to represent the constituency.

At the previous general election in 2015, he received more than 17,000 votes, followed by Ukip’s Peter Harris with 12,850 and Conservative Julie Marson who came third with the support of more than 10,000.

Rocky Gill, who has been a Barking and Dagenham councillor since 2010, is seeking to be elected as the new MP for Hornchurch and Upminster.

His dad came to this country from humble beginnings in 1968, worked in steel factories in Barking and then worked for seven years in the foundry at Fords in Dagenham.
