Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn made a statement of intent ahead of a potential general election today, visiting Norfolk's most marginal seat.
Mr Corbyn addressed party activists at Sprowston Methodist Church on Saturday morning, ahead of the members spending the day canvassing houses.
The visit of the leader of the opposition made clear the party sees the Norwich North constituency as in its cross hairs, with Conservative MP Chloe Smith holding the seat with a majority of just 507 in 2017.
Arriving in the city by train just before 10am, Mr Corbyn was then whisked off to the church on Cozens-Hardy Road in Sprowston, on the edge of Norwich.
Here, Mr Corbyn gave brief media interviews before addressing a crowd of around 110 people in the church hall, where he told members the party was "utterly determined" to win the seat.
