The PM's been in Nottingham telling people - he's going to make sure the economic recover isn't just about London.

Speaking in Nottingham in front of a slogan promising "a Britain living within its means'', Mr Cameron insisted that he would not treat people like a "bottomless pit'' to be taxed more to balance the books.

He also spoke to Capital urging cities in the East Midlands to work together to get more money and powers form the government.

The Prime Minister's been in Nottingham to launch the Conservative manifesto with the first of six pledges saying he plans to eliminate the deficit by 2018.

He says it'll be achieved by more spending cuts instead of raising taxes.

The Prime Minister said: "In the coming weeks I am going to set out the commitments of the next Conservative government in each of these areas: on jobs, on taxes, on education, on home ownership, and on retirement.''

But the first of those themes was "the goal on which all these other things rest'' - getting Britain back living within its means.
