The secret diary of an election photographer - Day 13

I may be getting cynical, but if Nick Clegg can get an audience of young people out of bed on a Sunday morning then he must be doing something very right indeed.

The location was Manor Park in Sutton where Nick gave a speech to young people asking them to get involved. Also, via the TV cameras that were there, he reminded people across the UK that they only have around 50 hours left to register to vote if they haven't done so already.

Then it was a short hop across South West London to a church in New Malden where Nick had been invited by Christian Aid to give a speech on international development.

The church was, naturally enough, keen to stress that this was not a Lib Dem event, but the reaction at the end showed that Nick had certainly won a lot of support with what he said, setting out the failures of a system which leaves society so divided and where populations around the world are still suffering despite the promises of successive governments.

We're off to Wales next for a press conference in Cardiff in the morning.
