WATCH: UKIP target Hartlepool in general election

WITH 100 days to go to the general election on May 7, canvassers from all the political parties are stepping up their efforts.

All around the region, activists are busy knocking on doors and handing out leaflets in a bid to drum up support for their party.

The BBC’s Sunday Politics programme caught up with some of them to ask why they do it - including a UKIP supporter in Hartlepool.
