Simon Hughes on Lib Dem party support

The Liberal Democrats are preparing to meet at their annual conference as a party in power, for the first time in 65 years.

Leader Nick Clegg is expected to try to allay fears over the pace and depth of the deficit reduction.

Deputy leader Simon Hughes told BBC Breakfast that the loyalty and values of Liberal Democrat party members had not changed since the coalition with the Conservatives was formed.
