WATCH: The last West Country at Westminster before the election

Ian Axton was back with the last of our political shows - the West Country at Westminster - before the election was on last night.

Guests included Queen legend Brian May - who launched his Common Decency campaign this week.

Joining the Brian May was retiring MP and Labour legend Dawn Primarolo, as well as Martin Horwood, the Lib Dem MP for Cheltenham. Unfortunately just before the programme our Conservative guest told us she was unable to make it due to last minute hold up.

George Osborne has been visiting a cider factory near Taunton today as part of his mission to meet businesses and organisations that are benefiting from last week's budget.

The Chancellor announced a cut in cider duty in a direct tribute to one of the south west's key industries.

The Chancellor also visited a cathedral in our region to announce a major grant for roof repairs.

Mr Osborne was given a tour of Wells Cathedral in Somerset which is one of the historic places of worship to benefit from a £4.5 million pound windfall to help protect them from the weather.

Exeter Cathedral also received £275,000, while Plymouth Roman Catholic Cathedral will receive just under £400,000.
