This week’s fantastic┬áphoto by IanVisits shows the Royal Proclamation for the dissolution of parliament being read out on the steps of the Royal Exchange. The proclaimation is signed by The Queen and read out by the Serjeant-at-Arms.

The candidates are now all out and about campaigning for votes for the general election on 6 May.
