Mr Chowney, who is also leader of Hastings Borough Council, is looking to overturn a majority of 4,796 votes from 2015, when Amber Rudd was elected as MP for Hastings and Rye.

Mr Chowney said: “Everyone seems to be saying the result could be close.

“It’s been a really good campaign and I’ve seen lots of enthusiasm. A lot of young people have been involved and it has made a difference, since 2,000 turned up to help.

“It’s the first time I’ve seen that kind of enthusiasm among young people since I joined the Labour Party in 1980.”
