  • NATIONAL: The parliamentary by-election in the Essex seat of Clacton is to be held on October 9.

    The crunch electoral test, triggered by the defection of former Conservative MP Douglas Carswell to UKIP, will come a week after the Tories' annual conference and on Prime Minister David Cameron's birthday.

    Mr Carswell shook Westminster last week by announcing that he was joining the eurosceptic UK Independence Party and standing down from Parliament to force a by-election.
