Shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper backs Polly Billington

SHADOW home secretary, Yvette Cooper was in confident mood as she joined Polly Billington and Team Labour on the campaign trail in Thurrock.

Ms Cooper went door to door in Chadwell St Mary and faced questions on the NHS, crime and immigration.

It was the day in which Labour launched their ten point plan for immigration.

The plan had been launched earlier by Labour leader, Ed Miliband.

He said: "If I am prime minister we will begin work immediately to fix our immigration system with a plan founded on fair rules, where wages can’t be undercut and benefits must be earned; a plan where our borders and our communities are strengthened,"

Other steps the party says it will take in the first 100 days of government include ending the indefinite detention of asylum seekers and banning recruitment agencies from hiring solely from overseas.

YT spoke to Ms Cooper about the plan, the issues on the doorstep and policing.
