Labour leader Ed Miliband visits Norwich on campaign trail

Labour leader Ed Miliband was in Norwich today as part of the May 5 local election campaign. Mr Miliband met staff and students at the Norwich University College of the Arts (Nuca), and later held a question-and-answer session with voters before meeting party candidates standing in the elections.

Labour was almost wiped out in the region during last year's general election, but the party is hoping to do well locally, particularly in Norwich where hopes our high the party can win outright control of the city council.

Mr Miliband, who is also making a campaign stop in Lowestoft today, said the election was a chance for voters to give their verdict on the cuts made by the coalition, but also to make a positive choice for his party.

'I am hopeful we are going to do well in these elections, but I take nothing for granted,' Mr Miliband said. 'I know we have got a big task to persuade people.'
