He started the week saying sorry - now Nick Clegg says the Lib Dems have become one of the three parties of Government.

Under pressure in the polls, the deputy Prime Minister closed his conference with a rallying speech aimed at converting the doubters in the country and within his own party.

In the Anglia region, the Lib Dems have added a new MP to their tally at each of the past four General Elections.

But since they joined the coalition - nearly half their district councillors have lost their seats.

Our political correspondent Emma Hutchinson is at the conference in Brighton.
