David Cameron in Leicestershire to make police and crime commissioner poll plea
David Cameron was due to visit Leicestershire today to encourage people to vote in this month's police and crime commissioner elections.
There are fears the vote, on November 15, could see a very low turnout because of public apathy.
Tory headquarters would not reveal yesterday exactly where Mr Cameron would be or when.
However, the Prime Minister said: "I'm visiting Leicestershire with a simple message – this month's police and crime commissioner elections really matter.

"On November 15, policing will change. We are giving the people of Leicestershire the power to elect your own police and crime commissioner.
"Someone to be your law and order champion, whose name and reputation is on the line, someone working constantly with the knowledge that if they don't do a good job then they'll be kicked out of the job.
"If you're like me and you're fed up with anti-social behaviour, drug dealers and gangs on the streets, then make your vote count on November 15."
The election in Leicestershire is being contested by Tory Sir Clive Loader, Labour's Sarah Russell and independent Suleman Nagdi.
