Sheffield Hallam MP and deputy prime minister Nick Clegg was in Crosspool today with his family on a visit the Selborne Road street market.

We spent a few minutes asking him about the street market, how often he is up in his constituency and his thoughts on some possible opponents at the 2015 general election.

Overall, the street market was a big success with stalls selling food, cakes, plants, crafts, jewellery, clothes and books. There was also music and dance from local schools and groups.
