The Prime Minister has urged south-east Asian investors to pump money into the cities of the "Northern Powerhouse".

As part of his four day trade mission to the region, David Cameron told investors in Singapore that he wanted them to look at the UK "in a new way" and consider cities like Leeds and Manchester for their plans rather than just London.

I really would encourage you to look at Britain in a new way...

We want to re-balance our country and we want Singaporean and other south-east Asian investors to help us do it. That is what the Northern Powerhouse is all about.

From the North Sea to the Singapore Strait, let's get more trade flowing.

– David Cameron
