We've all heard of the phrase 'Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells'. It's long been used as a term to describe a person with strongly conservative views.
When it comes to politics the town is certainly a Tory stronghold - with a Tory MP and borough council.
But does that mean the voters of Tunbridge Wells are as divided as their chosen political party when it comes to whether we stay or leave the European Union? Derek Johnson has been finding out.
The A21 is closed in both directions due to over running overnight roadworks between A262 / B2162 Lamberhurst Road (Forstal Farm Roundabout) and A228 (Tunbridge Wells / Pembury Turn Off).
The overnight works had been due to finish at 6am.
The Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS trust is expected to become the first trust in the country to go on trial for corporate manslaughter later today.
It follows the death of expectant mother Frances Cappuccini while giving birth at Tunbridge Wells Hospital.
One of the doctors, Errol Cornish, 67, who treated her is also facing a charge of manslaughter by gross negligence.
Parts of the UK have seen a flurry of snow as Britain prepares for a "bitterly cold" weekend.
Snow started to fall as far south as Eastbourne in East Sussex, with Beachy Head seeing a light dusting this morning. Parts of Kent, including Tunbridge Wells, and Essex have also seen snowfall.
Snow is largely unexpected for tonight, but there is an ice risk for Sunday morning as a result of the night's frosty conditions. The Met Office said Sunday will be another cold but sunny day and added that there will be further showers on the coastal areas throughout the day.
"It will still be cold tomorrow but perhaps not as cold as it feels today because the winds will be just that little bit lighter."
"There will be a return of milder air from the Atlantic next week, which will cut off this weekend's Arctic chill but will bring showers across the country."
Windsurfer Bryony Shaw from Tunbridge Wells in Kent has won silver in the RSX World Championships in Oman.
The 32-year-old has already been selected to represent Britain at the Olympics in Rio. She won bronze in 2008 in the Beijing Olympic Games, and said the week of competing in Oman had been relentless, but she was glad with her resilience.
“This was a target event and one I wanted to peak for.
“Mid way through the week I could see that it was going to be a really tough fight and come down to the medal race. It’s great that I’m able to perform on medal race day, it seems to be a strength of mine, and certainly sailing on the fin now it seems my speed has really improved.
“All of those things coming together and the board speed stuff really helps when you’re trying to perform at your peak regatta. It’s all those hard yards put into practice.”

Home owners and businesses in Kent and Sussex are counting the cost of flash floods after a night of torrential rain.
The town hardest hit was Tunbridge Wells in Kent, where damage to buildings and stock runs into tens of thousands of pounds.
With more heavy rain forecast tonight there are fears of a second deluge.
Watch Derek Johnson's report:
It was a busy night for Kent Fire & Rescue as flash flooding hit Tunbridge Wells town centre.
Over the course of the evening and into last night they took over 60 emergency calls regarding flooding, most of which were in and around Tunbridge Wells town centre.
Officers were sent to assess each call, in many cases the flood water was already receding or there was nowhere to pump water without affecting other properties.
Kent Fire & Rescue focused their resources on the following locations:
- Nevill Street, Tunbridge Wells: 2 fire engines pumped out water from two properties in Nevill Street.
- Market Street, Tunbridge Wells: 2 fire engines pumped out water from two properties in Market Street.
- Warwick Park, Tunbridge Wells: 1 fire engine pumped out water from flooded basement and garden using a light portable pump.
- Firefighters were not required to carry out rescue of any casualties and there are no reports of any injuries.
