Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn made a statement of intent ahead of a potential general election today, visiting Norfolk’s most marginal seat.
Mr Corbyn addressed party activists at Sprowston Methodist Church on Saturday morning, ahead of the members spending the day canvassing houses.
The visit of the leader of the opposition made clear the party sees the Norwich North constituency as in its cross hairs, with Conservative MP Chloe Smith holding the seat with a majority of just 507 in 2017.
