Political party leaders took their battle-buses on gruelling final legs of their campaign tours last night, travelling across the country.

Prime Minister David Cameron has taken part in a 36-hour tour of the country, which included Wales, Scotland, London and Devon. In the course of his travels he visited road building schemes, as well as a 24- hour supermarket.

The Conservative leader was met by his wife Samantha during the final leg, which took in Lancashire, Cumbria, and Scotland. In Lancaster she shed her normally glamorous attire for a hard hat.

Labour leader Ed Miliband ended his campaign with a rally in Leeds, telling the crowd: “We’re fighting for a Britain where we reward the hard work of every working person, not just those that get the six-figure bonuses.”

Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg travelled from Lands End to John O’Groats in 48 hours, reaching the final stop yesterday afternoon.

His party has relentlessly focused its campaign on “winnable” seats, with Clegg even delivering cakes to party activists in key battlegrounds.

The parties have run major grass-roots campaigns. Labour has had 5m conversations since January, while the Lib Dems have knocked on close to 4.3m doors.
