Nadine Dorries claims the Tories created twice as many jobs in Hartlepool as there are people

The local and mayoral elections are due to take place in a couple of days, but the constituency of Hartlepool will also hold a by-election, after the resignation of its MP.

It would be a feather in the cap of the Conservatives to take the traditional Labour seat, so Tory MPs have been making their case on social media.

Nadine Dorries decided to wave the flag for Boris Johnson’s job creation.

There was at least one problem with her claim.
