Liberal Democrat conference: Clegg to call for tax on wealthy

Nick Clegg will attempt to rally the Liberal Democrats with a call for new taxes on the wealthy, as activists gather for the party's conference.

Arriving at the conference in Brighton, he said: "It is a tough time economically for the country and it has been a challenging time for the Liberal Democrats politically.

"But I don't want anyone to be in any doubt: the Liberal Democrats are going to hold our nerve and see this through."

The BBC's Norman Smith reports from Brighton.
