Boris Johnson has been in the city, as the General Election campaign continues.

The PM has been visiting Entrain Space veterans campus in Wilton this morning (Tuesday 3rd December).

Mr Johnson spoke to some of the ex-military personnel living there, including 56 year old former Royal Irish Ranger, Paul O'Rourke.

He explained that he'd been living in a tent and homeless accommodation before being offered a place at the campus in the last week or so.

From there, he's come into the city centre.
