Residents on Canvey Island in Essex are calling for independence from the rest of the county. Councillor Dave Blackwell, who is the leader of the Canvey Island Independence Party (CIIP), says local people want to be able to determine their own future. The battle to self-govern echoes that of Catalonia in Spain, 700 miles (1,126km) away.
