Party leader Ed Miliband has been paying tribute to the Labour stalwart Tony Benn, who died on Friday at the age of 88.

Mr Benn became an MP in November 1950 and served in the Cabinet under Harold Wilson and James Callaghan.

Mr Miliband described him as a "champion of the powerless" who was "admired right across the political spectrum".
