The UK is legally bound to hold elections for the European Union because the country didn't leave the EU in time to cancel them. That means anyone elected could soon have to quit their jobs, if and when the UK does leave.

Political correspondent Joe Pike has met candidates from all nine parties contesting in the Yorkshire and the Humber region.

Over a cup of coffee, away from the daily grind of campaigning, he asked each why Calendar viewers should vote for them.
