PRIME Minister David Cameron is visiting the North East as the Tories ramp up their campaign trail in what they view to be winnable seats.

The PM praised North East industry, including Sunderland’s Nissan plant, as he arrived in the region.

He said: “After some long, dark days recovering from Labour’s Great Recession, the sun is starting to shine on the North East again.

“It’s an incredible comeback – with trains being made in County Durham, energy generated off the Northumberland coast, and more cars produced in Sunderland than the whole of Italy. It’s this strong, growing economy which families’ security depends upon.”

As well as supporting Conservative candidate Anne-Marie Trevelyan’s campaign in the Berwick constituency, which includes Alnwick, Mr Cameron will also be in Stockon-on-Tees offering his support for fellow Tory James Wharton.

He will tell voters the economy is growing and say infrastructure is a priority for the next Government while highlighting the Coalition’s commitment to dual the A1 in Northumberland.
