Liberal Democrats 'haven't lost soul' - Nick Clegg

9 June 2014 Last updated at 13:34 BST

Nick Clegg has attempted to rally the Liberal Democrats for the general election fight, by insisting the coalition with the Conservatives has not robbed them of their "soul".

In a speech, the Lib Dem leader said it was high time such a perception was debunked as a ''myth''.

The party has suffered a string of heavy losses in recent elections, losing all but one of its 11 MEPs in the European contest, finishing fifth behind the Green Party.

It also lost more than 300 council seats in local elections across England.
