Brexit, climate change, and affordable housing were key topics for voters at a packed hustings for the Witney by-election last night.

The hustings took place at Charlbury Memorial Hall, in Brown’s Lane.

It was organised by Churches Together in Charlbury and the West Oxfordshire branch of the United Nations Association.

Unlike a hustings in Witney on Monday, all the candidates standing in the by-election on October 20 have been invited.

This includes independents and other parties such as the National Health Action Party (NHA), whose candidate Dr Helen Salisbury complained she had been excluded from the first hustings.

The eight candidates who attended included independent David Bishop, who came dressed as Elvis and campaigned for better rural bus services.

Also speaking were Robert Courts for the Conservatives, Duncan Enright for Labour, Liz Leffman for the Liberal Democrats, Dr Helen Salisbury for the National Health Action Party, Larry Sanders for the Green Party, independent Daniel Skidmore, and Nicholas Ward, an independent candidate against the HS2 rail link.

There were 16 questions submitted by members of the 200-strong audience on Brexit but once candidates had explained their positions people asked for new topics to be discussed and the effects of climate change were next on the agenda.

The majority of candidates told the hall they voted Remain.

After revealing he voted Leave Mr Courts pledged to listen to everyone, whether they voted Leave or Remain.

Mr Enright said he was a proud campaigner for Remain, adding: ''I feel European in my bones.''

Ms Leffman said she campaigned hard to Remain and Mr Sanders said: ''We have to respect the Brexit vote but we do not know what kind of Brexit we voted for.''

The first hustings took place at the High Street Methodist Church in Witney and featured candidates for the Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats and the Green Party.

A large number of issues were discussed including grammar schools, the refugee crisis and housing levels in West Oxfordshire as well traffic levels on the A40.

The by-election was triggered by David Cameron’s resignation as Witney MP last month.
