The Calling Peston team aren’t the only political podcast heavyweights broadcasting from the north of England.

From The North is dedicated to a range of issues across the northern regions – from a crisis in suicides, the legacy of the 7Up social experiment, the claimed north-south divide, to who should manage Manchester United.

Now they’ve taken on a political focus for their first election special.

Hannah Miller at ITV Granada catches up with Joe Pike at ITV Calendar and Martin Stew at ITV Tyne Tees and ITV Border for a relaxed but insightful 14 minutes.

Joe shares what was odd about Boris Johnson’s visits to the floods in South Yorkshire and the Midlands before analysing the role Brexit is playing in the campaign across his regions.

Martin explains how Jeremy Corbyn and the PM are both going down on doorsteps across the North East – plus the role Steve Coogan is playing – before revealing a very awkward truth about the “posh” maker of the Brexit Party’s campaign videos.

Today’s question: How will they vote in London’s food market oasis?

Some might say it’s famous for more than just its place on an Oasis album cover (you know what some might say) but let’s just roll with it for this feature.

Berwick Street in Soho – immortalised for a generation by its place on the sleeve of 1995’s (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? – remains one of London’s most iconic market streets.

ITV London’s Rags Martel said ‘hello’ and ‘hey now!’ to the food traders to find out how they plan to vote, if at all.

So are they disillusioned or refusing to look back in anger? And will they pop the champagne supernova if one party achieves morning glory in the early hours of December 13th?

Wonderwall all the fuss is about? Tired of these dreadful Oasis puns?

Either way, check out Martel’s Market report above – it’s a good watch.

Here’s a simple guide to the key pledges, plus ITV News Science Editor Tom Clarke’s analysis of the flagship £100bn-a-year climate change spend.
