The Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and Shadow Deputy Prime Minister, Harriet Harman arrived in Stockton-on-Tees today to join the Labour Parliamentary candidate for Stockton South, Louise Baldock as they went for a wander around the High Street to try and gain support from shoppers.

The visit came as part of Labour’s campaign ahead of the General Election on May 7 which is predicted to be Britain’s closest national election. After the walkabout they jumped aboard the ‘Pink Bus’ and headed to Grangefield Youth and Community Centre to meet women voters to chat about the issues that they were concerned about ahead of the election.

On assignment for Getty Images I spent the day photographing the visit…
