Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne is campaigning in Carlisle today, ahead of the general election in just over three weeks.
The city is considered a key marginal seat as the Conservative Party took it at the 2010 election with a majority of just 853 votes.
Before that, it had been represented by Labour for more than 40 years.
At this general election the seat is being contested by:
- Alfred Okam (Independent)
- Fiona Mills (UKIP)
- Helen Davison (Green Party)
- John Stevenson (Conservative)
- Lee Sherriff (Labour)
- Loraine Birchall (Liberal Democrats)
