Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has pledged to take on "backwards-looking politics", as he made the case for membership of the EU in his conference's closing speech.
Addressing Lib Dem members in York, Mr Clegg portrayed the elections as a straight choice between his party and critics of the EU, such as UKIP's Nigel Farage.
He also praised the party's role within the coalition government.
