Prime Minister Gordon Brown ended a hectic week with a visit to Swindon today - just as the UK stock market crashed again.
The PM spent an hour at the STEAM museum to launch a new initiative from Swindon-based energy giant npower called 'Health Through Warmth', which aims to improve the quality of life, warmth and comfort levels of vulnerable people.
The PM was joined by North Swindon MP Michael Wills and South Swindon MP Anne Snelgrove.
Reassuring everyone he still had the on-going economic problems at the forefront of his mind, however, the PM said:
"I've been here today talking heating bills and mortgages with people, and rest assured we're doing everything in our power to stabilise the current financial situation."
The UK stock market eventually finished 381 points down - the third worst fall in its history.
