During the general election campaign former Labour leader Ed Miliband was jokingly referred to as "the stripper" after his battle bus was gatecrashed by Nicola Braithwaite and her friends.

The group from Knutsford spotted the Labour bus in Chester and Miss Braithwaite received an invitation to board the bus and meet Mr Miliband.

The lawyer left the coach to cheers from her fellow hens and confirmed she got a photo with the Labour leader.

Mr Miliband later appeared at the door of the coach waving, prompting further screams and cheers.
