Daily Echo: UKIP chairman Steve Crowther's Land Rover which was given a parking ticket in Eastleigh today UKIP chairman Steve Crowther's Land Rover which was given a parking ticket in Eastleigh today

THE UK Independence Party’s chairman got a nasty surprise when he returned to his car after campaigning in the Eastleigh by-election.

Steve Crowther’s grey Land Rover, complete with the distinctive UKIP flags, had been given a parking ticket in Leigh Road.

He had spent time meeting voters in the town centre with party leader Nigel Farage in a last-minute push for votes.

A UKIP spokesman confirmed Mr Crowther’s car had received a ticket.

He said: “Given the restrictive parking regulations around here which are strangling the high street it's no surprise.”

If you let your dog run free and it enters one of the farms in the area, some farmers will quite legally treat it to both barrels if your dog is believed to be 'worrying' their livestock. On occasions this heartache can be compounded if the farmer goes on to seek redress for any losses.

IT'S FINALLY POLLING DAY IN THE EASTLEIGH BY-ELECTION

Updated 11:06am Thursday 28th February 2013

10:23am

THE FLUORIDE PROTEST MARCH IS UNDERWAY AND ORGANSIERS ARE ANTICIPATING AS MANY AS 200 PEOPLE TAKING TO THE STREETS OF EASTLEIGH...

10:18am.

Just when you thought the protest marches were over, members of Hampshire Against Fluoridation are currently gathering in Eastleigh to make their voices heard.

They are planning a slow procession through the town to the Masonic Hall in Cranbury Road where voting will be taking place.

Their morning of action comes just weeks after health bosses admitted for the first time they don't expect fluoridation to be in place until 2014 - five years after it was given the green light.

The scheme, aimed at improving dental health, would cover parts of Southampton, Eastleigh, Totton, Netley and Rownhams.

Campaigners say the Strategic Health Authority (SHA) should now "give up" on the delayed project, saying it is "morally and ethically" wrong to fluoridate water while questions remain over its impact.
