Labour leader Ed Miliband visited Greenhithe and Gravesend last Thursday as he stepped us his campaigning for the local elections at the start of next month.

The leader of the opposition is meeting voters in advance of Kent County Council (KCC) elections on May 2.

He visited Asda in Crossways Boulevard, Greenhithe, before heading to Gravesend Borough Market and finishing the day with a trip to Maidstone around.

Mr Miliband said: “I’m going to cut train fares and energy bills for the elderly - something needs to be done to kickstart this economic stagnation.

“I’ve been very open about what we have got wrong in the past such as immigration and we need to consider how we’ll change direction to what the current government are doing.”

He will be hoping to loosen the Tories’ stronghold over the KCC.
