The North West played host to two of the major party leaders today on the latest day of the General Election campaign.

Jeremy Corbyn was in Lancaster at the university to launch a new digital plan that would see big corporation's taxes fund free broadband for the whole country.

It is the fourth time Mr Corbyn has been campaigning in the North West in the last two weeks.

Boris Johnson was also in Lancashire, where he visited Coronation Candy in Blackpool, making his very own 'Back Boris' stick of rock.

The Prime Minister then made his way to Thornton-Cleveleys to announce £500 million to get rail networks 'back on track'.

He had earlier been in Greater Manchester to unveil the Conservative's 'battle bus'.
