Lynn News makes the news with Labour candidate's claim: 'Gordon Brown worst PM ever'

The Norfolk bi-weekly Lynn News is all over Sky News and the BBC today after splashing on an interview in which a Labour election candidate described Gordon Brown as "the worst PM we have ever had in this country".
The comment was made by Manish Sood, who is standing in the North West Norfolk constituency, to reporter Sophie Wyllie who was doing a round-up of candidates in the constituency.
In less than two hours of being on the Lynn News website, the story had nearly 3,000 hits with interest from as far afield as India and Denmark.
Wyllie has been interviewed by Sky, and is due to be interviewed by Anglia Television.
The BBC has also been running the story since early this morning, with the Lynn News reporting that its newsdesk has been inundated with calls from national media and other publications.
The Lynn News also reports that from the start of the election campaign: "Mr Sood declared the seat was unwinnable when speaking to the media."
