On the campaign trail on Friday

Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn will go head-to-head in the latest election debate on Friday night.

The two previously locked horns on an ITV special in November, with a snap YouGov poll finding viewers thought Mr Johnson had the better of the exchange by 51% to 49%.

On Friday they will be in Southampton for a programme aired by the BBC, following a day of campaigning.
