Hugh Grant hits election campaign trail for Lib Dems in London

Actor Hugh Grant campaigns for the Liberal Democrats parliamentary candidate Luciana Burger at Woodhouse College in north London on Sunday (December 1).

In the video, Grant makes a joke about leading the party in the 1970s - as he previously played Lib Dem MP Jeremy Thorpe in the BBC drama "A Very English Scandal."

Berger, who left the Labour Party to join the Lib Dems, is currently 18 points down in Finchley and Golders Green, according to a YouGov poll cited by UK media.

UK voters go to the polls on December 12.
