Live from Salford in Greater Manchester, Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn go head to head in their first TV debate.
The UK leaders will set out how they would break the political deadlock and heal a divided nation. The debate will be moderated by Julie Etchingham. Each leader will have one minute each for their opening statements and 45 seconds for closing statements in front of the live studio…
