Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has told the BBC that he is "very confident" that the Liberal Democrats will hold on to the constituency of Eastleigh in the forthcoming by-election.

The contest was forced by the resignation of Chris Huhne last week.

The BBC's James Landale has been on the campaign trail.
