This week's local election in Southwark's newly created London Bridge and West Bermondsey ward has been halted after the death of Conservative Party candidate Toby Eckersley MBE.

Southwark's opposition leader tells us why the Liberal Democrats are "a real fighting force" that has punched above its weight in holding the Labour administration to account.
