    Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron has pledged to run the next General Election campaign with EU Membership at the heart of the campaign.

    With the Labour Party tearing itself apart between the Parliamentary Party and the membership, and the Tories in their own leadership crisis, the Lib Dems have become the home of those who passionately believe in the UK being outward-looking, open and stronger in Europe.

    Prospective Lib Dem candidate for Eastwood Park and former Councillor Paul Collins, has asked when the Council plans to put back the Red Light traffic camera that was in situ on the approach from London towards the Kent Elms Corner junction.

    Speaking to the Southend Lib Dem website, Paul said, 'The traffic camera was taken away for the work on the installation of the pedestrian crossings and has not been re-instated. As we now have many people crossing now at the point, including school children and visitors to the health centre, I would have thought a red light camera was now more important than before at this site.'
