Simon Hughes: Lib Dems will fight Tory seats

Liberal Democrat deputy leader Simon Hughes has confirmed the party will field candidates against the Tories at the next general election.

As the coalition government prepares to mark its first 100 days, he said there would be no electoral pact despite the two parties working together.
