Ms Swinson served as a junior business minister from 2012-15 in the Tory/Lib Dem government.

She told the BBCs Mr Neil: I am sorry I did that. It is one of the things we did get wrong.

Ms Swinson said she had acted out of collective responsibility.

She went on: Some cuts were necessary but the balance between cuts and tax rises I dont think was the right balance.

The party leader earlier faced Extinction Rebellion protesters who had glued themselves to her campaign bus dressed as bees.

They also targeted a Brexit Party constituency office and Labour bus.

In Streatham, South London, Ms Swinson said: Theres clearly a little bit of an irony in gluing yourself to an electric bus. But I recognise the point.
