Ordinarily a by-election in a safe Conservative seat in Lincolnshire would barely raise an eyebrow in Westminster, but these are no ordinary times.

And in a constituency that voted to leave the European Union - Brexit is dominating the contest, with UKIP hoping to cause an upset.

Residents in South Yorkshire say they're living under a cloud of uncertainty over whether their homes will be demolished to make way for the proposed HS2 rail link.
While rest of the country learned the Government's preferred route today, Sheffield was the only place along the proposal to be left in limbo.
It comes after initial plans to run trains to a station at Meadowhall were shelved, meaning the new route would run right through a newly built housing development in Mexborough.
Doncaster North MP Ed Miliband says there are better routes available to the government that would avoid bulldozing homes in his constituency.

Ukip has selected a by-election candidate who was previously embroiled in controversy over remarks calling for immigrants to be "sent back".
Victoria Ayling, who will fight next month's Sleaford and North Hykeham contest for the party, was at the centre of a storm in 2013 after The Mail On Sunday reported it had seen a video from 2008 when she was seeking to stand as a Tory MEP candidate in which she discussed immigration and said: "I just want to send the lot back, but I can't say that."
She said the remarks had been taken out of context and she was only referring to illegal immigrants.
In 2010, Ms Ayling stood for the Tories in Great Grimsby, losing to Labour's Austin Mitchell by just 714 votes.
The Tories are defending a majority of 24,000 in the Lincolnshire by-election on December 8 caused by Stephen Phillips standing down after he raised doubts about the way Brexit is being handled.
