Labour Leader Visits Chesterfield

Ed Miliband in Chesterfield

A surprise visit to Chesterfield this morning saw Ed Miliband amongst the shoppers, meeting market traders and signing autographs.

In the shadow of the Market Hall, clad in sheeting whilst the building work is in progress, local Chesterfield people were pleased to greet the Labour leader as he wandered around the market place shaking hands and chatting in warm, spring sunlight.

Flanked by Toby Perkins, Chesterfield’s MP and Shadow Pubs Minister, and the party faithful, Mr Miliband was in Chesterfield to help the Labour supporters prepare for the coming local elections.
