Local MPs initiative a first is a new on-line TV service for people who are passionate about our local community. It is made by local people, for local people and about local issues.

More than 4,000 people have logged onto watch in the first few days alone.

Clacton TV is completely free and viewers do not even need to register to watch.

Douglas expalins "Our video clips are made by local people, about topics of local interest. Like a local newspaper, we aim to cover stories that interest you - using video clips made by you.

Normal TV only seems to feature stories that are of regional interest - not things that are really local. But always has room for local items because it is local people, not remote programmers who get to decide what we show."
