It is just one month to go before the election and the battle to win our votes is intensifying. There is still no significant movement in the polls, Labour and Conservatives are neck and neck and it seems we are heading for one of the tightest contests for years.

Two politicians have been in our region today - the Environment and Rural Affairs Secretary Elizabeth Truss in Suffolk and the Shadow Energy Secretary Caroline Flint in Bedford.

Battleground Anglia: The 69 seats in the East of England where the General Election will be won or lost

The Anglia region is a key election battleground for the politicians fighting for votes to get them into government on Thursday 7 May.

There are 69 constituencies in the region and in 2010 most of them were won by the Conservatives. The Lib Dems won 4 seats in 2010 while Labour lost more than a dozen seats and were left with just two.

Since the last General Election there have been two by-elections in the Anglia region. Labour won back Corby in Northamptonshire in 2012 and UKIP won Clacton in Essex after Douglas Carswell defected from the Conservatives.
