Nick Clegg jokes about helping Tories go green

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has told his party conference that being in government is tougher than many Liberal Democrats had predicted.

In his keynote speech, Mr Clegg said the country faced challenging times but he was confident his party would do the right thing and would continue to press on issues the Conservatives appeared to have turned their back on, like the environment.

He joked that the Tories needed the Lib Dems' support to keep their pledge on environmental issues.
