How do people in Brixton feel about race relations and immigration? World in Action sets out to investigate, amid the contentious Lambeth Central by-election campaign, where candidates range from the National Front to the Workers Revolutionary Party. The residents of Haycroft Road seem nonplussed by the furore, reasoning that the only real issue is whether or not their neighbours are 'Brixtonian'.
