Theresa May has been visiting businesses in the St Ives today as her campaign trail passes through the South West. She took the opportunity to tell business owners and the media that the Conservatives are the political party to deliver economic security across the region.

The PM says a "strong and stable" Conservative government can deliver the transport and infrastructure promises her party's MPs were elected on in the 2015 general election.

The PM suggests Cornwall won't be left out in cold after Brexit. Theresa May wants wealth and prosperity spread across the UK, including the South West. She tells ITV West Country Political Correspondent David Wood that the key to this is "our modern industrial strategy".

When pushed on how she's going to address potentially "tough" Brexit negotiations, the current PM believes the UK is in a strong position on its side of the debating table and reminded ITV News that the voters' choice is clear, it's between her or Jeremy Corbyn to lead discussions.
