As the days between now and the General Election in May gradually slip away the pre-election machines are starting to increase their activities in the marginal areas where a guaranteed victory in the polls might not be as forthcoming as in some other areas. Redcar on Teesside is one of these seats and after a couple of recent visits to the area by Labour MP’s it was time for the party leader Ed Miliband to come to town.
During the visit to Redcar and Cleveland College he addressed members of the public in a People’s Question Time event where following a short introductory speech by the Labour Party candidate for Redcar and Cleveland Anna Turley, he took part in a question and answer session before sitting and chatting with a few of the attending visitors.
I was on assignment for Getty Images covering the event and below are a selection of some of the pictures from the visit edited into black and white. Colour versions are available on the Getty Images website… HERE
