Paddy Ashdown urges Lib Dems to not let power be a 'blip'

Paddy Ashdown, the Liberal Democrat's former leader, has called on his party to win a second term in office.

Mr Ashdown, heading the party's election strategy, told the Brighton spring conference he wanted being in government to "become a habit" and not be a "blip".

Earlier, Business Secretary Vince Cable warned industry would suffer if areas like health were spared spending cuts.
