Prime minister Theresa May visited Norwich this afternoon, where she urged Conservative candidates to work 'flat out' for a landslide.
The prime minister arrived at the International Aviation Academy at Norwich International Airport this afternoon, where she was joined by Chloe Smith and Lana Hempsall, Conservative candidates for Norwich North and South.
The visit, which was closely stage-managed, marked the launch of the Tory campaign in East Anglia.
Speaking earlier at a similar event in London she said: 'The local elections are now behind us. It's time to focus on this crucial General Election campaign. And we can take absolutely nothing for granted.'
In a warning against complacency, she pointed to recent upsets at the ballot box, saying she had learned 'never to predict an election result'.
