The election campaigns in Wales are taking on an economy theme as the Labour chancellor drums up support for his party's economic recovery plan.

As the UK general election draws nearer, members of the three mainstream parties have taken to the campaign trail, visiting various constituencies across the country.

Secretary of State for Trade and Industry Alistair Darling, who is a prominent Labour politician, made a visit to south Wales, where he warned voters not to cast their ballots for the Tories, saying a Conservative victory in the May 6 election would derail the country's economic recovery.

Speaking to the electorate in Cardiff and Bridgend, Darling said, "Wales is at risk from Tory cuts which would derail the recovery, leading to more job losses and cuts in key frontline public services."

Meanwhile, Tory Shadow Secretary of State for Wales Cheryl Gillan unveiled the Conservative party's strategy for economic recovery in Cardiff, warning that Wales was tussling with a "job crisis."
