now on BBC1 it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:08.

Ukip leader Paul Nuttall was confirmed today

:00:09.:00:11.

as the party's candidate for

:00:12.:00:12.

the Stoke-on-Trent Central by-election.

:00:13.:00:13.

The vote on February 23rd follows the resignation

:00:14.:00:15.

Candidate for the Stoke by-election and our leader, Paul Nuttall!

:00:16.:00:27.

Applause for the man hoping to end 66 years of Labour's hold

:00:28.:00:31.

Stoke is already the capital of Brexit.

:00:32.:00:35.

Let us make Stoke the capital city of change.

:00:36.:00:40.

And change is what this MEP needs to become an MP in a seat

:00:41.:00:44.

where Ukip came second in the 2015 general election.

:00:45.:00:48.

Tristam Hunt only had a 5,000 majority, at a general election

:00:49.:00:51.

which was pre-Brexit, and pre-Jeremy Corbyn.

:00:52.:00:55.

I think we are in with a great chance.

:00:56.:00:57.

Half a mile across the A500, Labour launched their by-election campaign,

:00:58.:01:01.

and listening to people today about their concerns about what's

:01:10.:01:12.

We know the Royal has been under huge pressures.

:01:13.:01:17.

We're going to fight for the NHS in this by-election and beyond.

:01:18.:01:20.

But will this remain a Labour city when it comes to polling day?

:01:21.:01:23.

I know Ukip are trying to come in and get the seat safe,

:01:24.:01:31.

but I think it will still be Labour at the end of the day.

:01:32.:01:34.

Ukip's campaign will be encouraged by the numbers.

:01:35.:01:36.

70% of people in this city voted to leave the EU,

:01:37.:01:42.

but when the ballot papers are counted here next month

:01:43.:01:44.

or prove that this is still a safe Labour seat?

:01:45.:01:51.

And Patrick Burns will be talking to the Ukip leader Paul Nuttall

:01:52.:01:54.

about the Stoke Central by-election in this week's Sunday Politics.
