THE Conservative Party leader branded English Defence League supporters as "dreadful people", saying he could "ban them" if he was in power, as he stopped off in Dudley during his 24 hour campaign for change.

David Cameron arrived at the West Midlands Ambulance Service station in Burton Road in his battle bus shortly before 12.30pm.

The Tory politician was met by a media scrum of TV cameras and camera flash bulbs as journalists from across the country fought to get a shot of Mr Cameron in the last day before the polls open.

Mr Cameron is currently touring the country in the final 24 hours before election day in his bid to be given the keys to 10 Downing Street.

During his whistle-stop visit to the ambulance station, Mr Cameron met with Steve Perry, West Midlands Ambulance Service Divisional Commander for the Black Country and Vickie Wharton, Group Station Manager for Dudley, before meeting paramedics and technicians.

During the short visit, which lasted around 20 minutes, Mr Cameron said the Black Country was a key area to Conservative success in tomorrow's election, and said he wanted to visit to show his support for the two Dudley candidates Graeme Brown and Chris Kelly.

He also said he thought the party had "fought the most energetic campaign, met more people, done more events, answered more questions and set out the most consistent case for change."

Speaking about the recent visits to the town by anti-mosque protestors the English Defence League, Mr Cameron said they were "dreadful people", who would "always be under review" if he was in power, adding "and if I needed to ban them I will".

However one Dudley resident was left with questions unanswered after shouting for the Tory leader to hear him out as he arrived at the station.

Mr Cameron said he would answer his question on his way out, but when the man approached him again as he left, the leader boarded the coach which was bound for Wales for the last few hours of the campaign.
