David Miliband has said that he will take a break from front-line politics after he lost the Labour leadership contest to his younger brother Ed.

Speaking to the BBC's Nick Robinson, Mr Miliband said he felt he could best support Ed by giving him space to "drive the party forward in the way that he sees fit".
