THE FIRST HEAD-to-head debate of the UK general election debate took place this evening.

Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn faced off in the live ITV programme before an audience of 200 people and took questions on Brexit, the NHS and their own characters.

This evening’s clash is the first of a whole host of debates that will take place before election day on 12 December. The BBC will be hosting several and Sky News has one next week.
