Clacton guide for UKIP MP hopeful Arron Banks

Last week, the man who's bankrolled UKIP, Arron Banks, announced his intention to stand as a candidate in Clacton in the General Election on 8 June.

However, he admitted he knew "nothing about Clacton at all".

The constituency is much larger than the town of Clacton and also includes Frinton-on-Sea, Walton-on-the-Naze, St Osyth, Jaywick, Weeley and many more surrounding villages.

The BBC's Laurence Cawley gives us a quick guide to the main seaside town for starters.
