It’s the last day of the Liberal Democrat conference today, which means that leader Jo Swinson will deliver her keynote speech to excited delegates at the seaside town of Bournemouth. Normally, political parties arrange for a photoshoot ahead of the final speech of conference, so that various MPs and bigwigs are snapped walking triumphantly into the main auditorium to a chorus of cheers from their supporters.

But the Lib Dems decided to ditch tradition this morning. Eschewing the normal ‘arrival’ photos, the party’s MPs decided instead to arrange a photoshoot of the group walking along the Bournemouth beach, with leader Jo Swinson even picking up her shoes for her stroll in the sand.
