With just two days to go on the campaign trail before election day on Thursday, party leaders are stepping up their efforts to earn much-needed votes.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will have a very busy day on Tuesday canvassing north-west England and then Scotland while Boris Johnson will also be out and about.

The Lib Dems, Brexit Party and Greens also have campaign events with all the parties knowing false moves now could prove fatal to their chances of winning as many seats as possible.

Conservatives

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will start his day in the Midlands with a press conference before travelling up to north-west England in the evening.
