With 36 days until Britain goes to the polls the General Election contest has heated up.

A former senior Labour MP has hit out at party leader Jeremy Corbyn, branding him "completely unfit to lead our country" before suggesting 'Decent traditional patriotic Labour voters' should vote Tory.

Today will see the Tories and Labour raising the issue of the economy with speeches in the North.
