A Liberal Democrat candidate yesterday said the 'wind of change' was in the air as she seeks to make history in the South Norfolk constituency.

Jacky Howe said leader Nick Clegg's performance in the first general election television debate had given supporters fresh hope that they could win the parliamentary seat.

Her comments come as the Liberal Democrats look to end 60 years of Tory domination in South Norfolk. Conservative Richard Bacon won by an 8,782 majority at the 2005 general election.

But Mrs Howe said the party's national profile would help close the gap on the Tories.
