Prime Minister supports Bristol mayoral campaign

Prime Minister David Cameron is in Bristol, giving his support for a yes vote in next week's referendum on whether the city should have an elected mayor.

Mr Cameron, who's also been visiting the Airbus factory at Filton, is expected to argue that the vote is a "once in a generation" chance to change the way the city is run, and that a mayor elected by the whole city will give it more power and influence.

But no campaigners, who've been giving out leaflets today, say the post would cost a million pounds over four years which could be better spent on improving services.
