US style primary vote in Totnes


Voting is closing in the Conservative parliamentary candidate elections for Totnes in Devon. The vote is a party election first, as the Conservative party is offering all sixty thousand voters in the constituency a say on who should be their candidate. The election was called after Anthony Sheen resigned following the expenses scandal. Political correspondent Norman Smith reports on the success of the US-style primary.
