Labour leader Ed Miliband brought his election campaign to Stevenage on Saturday, and was joined by supporters including comedian Eddie Izzard and former Labour minister Tom Watson.
Miliband met Labour Party members and supporters at Springfield House in the Old Town.
Frank Radcliffe, a Labour member of North Herts District Council who was among the supporters, said: “The visit was for Labour Party members and supporters, to thank them for their hard work in the constituency.
“He laid out Labour’s plans for the next government, if elected.
“It was a generic statement as part of his general campaign. He talked a lot about the NHS and putting money back into it.”
