Election 2015: Tory campaign 'relevant to local concerns'

A focus on local issues in marginal seats was the key to election victory, the chairman of the Welsh Conservatives has said.

He claimed Labour messages on issues such as the bedroom tax were too generic and irrelevant to the majority of voters in key battleground seats.
