UK Election 2010: Jobs Up North

Lesley Curwen reports on jobs and money issues in the UK election, from her roots in Preston, in north-west England.

She talks to football fans at Preston North End about the issues that affect them, and hears how globalisation has brought waves of job losses to Preston through the last century.

Lesley meets a union official to talk about growing fears for public sector jobs, and goes into the factory near Preston where Britain's nuclear fuel is made. Could new nuclear power stations bring fresh jobs to the region?

And she goes back to the iconic Preston cafe which she used to visit with her grandmother, to talk to Jackie, a waitress who's worked there for 53 years.
