Nick Clegg: 'Democracy a precious thing'

Nick Clegg has expressed his disappointment at the low turnout in Thursday's PCC and by-election polls, saying that he always hoped people would vote as "democracy is a precious thing".

The deputy prime minister and Lib Dem leader said that he believed people were often "disenchanted with politics at this mid-term point" but that there was also a "wider issue that people were not willing to go out and cast their vote in favour of anybody".
