    Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg has announced a final red line that the Liberal Democrats would demand in any coalition negotiations.

    Nick has set out how the Liberal Democrats will make pay increases for public sector workers a priority in any coalition talks.

    The "triple lock" scheme increases pensions by whichever is higher of earnings, growth, inflation or 2.5 per cent.

    The policy was a front page manifesto commitment and key demand by the Liberal Democrats in Coalition negotiations in 2010. Since its implementation, the basic state pension has increased by £950.
