The leader of the Green Party has today urged people to make their votes count during a visit to Cambridge today.

Natalie Bennet said the general election was set to see a number of seats won with just a quarter of the votes.

She said, because of that, tactical voting was no longer likely to work.

"Look at the candidates, look at the policies, look at the parties and say 'that's what I support' and vote for that."

– Natalie Bennett, Green Party leader.

As well as meeting party activists and going on walkabout in the market square, the party leader also visited the town's railway station.

Cambridge and Norwich South are among the Green Party's main target seats.

A Norfolk hospital has revealed what its expanded emergency department could look like.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital plans to double the size of its A&E following a significant increase in patient numbers.

Since its current site opened at Colney in 2001, the department has seen the number of attendances increase by 100% from 50,000 to 100,000 patients a year.

It is hoped construction work could begin this winter and is likely to take 12 to 18 months to complete.
