Theresa May is to visit Norfolk as she makes a final whistle-stop tour of the country to boost the Tory vote.

Details of her visit remain under wraps but it is thought she will stop off in at least one marginal seat in Norfolk.

Both North Norfolk and Norwich South are seen by Conservative campaign headquarters as winnable seats where Liberal Democrat Norman Lamb and Labour’s Clive Lewis have faced tough battles from Tory candidates. But she could also stop off in Norwich North where Tory hopeful Chloe Smith is hoping to be returned.

The prime minister kicked off a marathon day of campaigning with an early morning trip to a London meat market with husband Philip and she will end the day in the Midlands.

Meanwhile Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will attend six rallies from Glasgow in the north to London in the south via North Wales.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron will attend events in the South East.
