With just seven days until polling day, candidates are stepping up their attempts to meet as many voters as possible.

Ed Miliband claimed yesterday that Labour has had 'conversations' with 341,000 people in the East.

The leader of the opposition has challenged activists to have one million more conversations before polling day.

Mr Miliband has promised to put working families first, and said: 'We are campaigning in the right way, not talking over people's heads, but speaking direct – in every town, street-by-street, door-by-door – with an unprecedented four million conversations since the start of this year.'

He continued: 'Today I'm challenging my party to do one million more in the next seven days to get us to five million. Because this election is not, at heart, about any one party or any one politician. It is about you. Your vote matters. This is your time.'
