Deputy PM Nick Clegg delivers Lords 'soapbox' speech

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has delivered a speech on Lords reform to an audience of young people from a soapbox in Victoria Gardens.

"We need to pull the House of Lords from the 19th century into the 21st century," he told the group gathered.

It comes after Prime Minister David Cameron called on MPs to support Lords reform.
