The Lincoln Debate: Audience verdict

The Lincoln Debate, held at the LPAC, saw five of the six MP candidates for the city answer questions from a 200-strong audience, as well as responding to comments via social media.

The 90-minute programme, which was a unique collaboration between The Lincolnite, Lincolnshire Echo and BBC Radio Lincolnshire, was broadcast live on May 4 – three days before the general election.

Those attending the debate, as well as those getting involved at home, had their say on social media using the #LincolnDebate hashtag.

In a series of post-event reflections, audience members spoke to The Lincolnite about the highlights, and which of the candidates stood out to them.
