Labour leader Ed Miliband is to visit St Helens this morning when he will visit a Pilkington Glass factory to discuss the impact energy bills are having on the economy.

The visit comes after Mr Miliband’s party conference pledge to curb electricity and gas price hikes if he wins the next election.

He will meet Pilkington bosses and as well as local Labour Party officials.

It is the first time Mr Miliband has visited St Helens since 2010 when he made a campaign stop during his leadership election bid.
