Conservative leader David Cameron made a late night stop at WEC Group on his pre-election campaign. Mr Cameron arrived at WEC Group shortly after 1am as part of an all-night, last-minute nationwide tour as the country prepared to go to the polls.
The visit saw David Cameron speaking with apprentices, buying a cup of coffee from the vending machine and signing copies of the Conservative manifesto for the party's candidate Jake Berry.
Speaking afterwards, he insisted he was not tired despite the gruelling schedule - Darwen was sandwiched between trips to Carlisle and Wakefield - adding: 'There are still people who have not made their minds up.'
Some of the group of 16 to 21 year old apprentices said they were impressed by Mr Cameron's interest in their work. WEC spends £100,000 a year developing its apprentices.
