The Labour leader, Ed Miliband, has dismissed criticism of his decision to support the government's public sector pay freeze by the UK's biggest union.

The general secretary of Unite, Len McCluskey, has said Mr Miliband undermined his own leadership, and lessened his party's chances of winning the next election.

Ed Milliband told BBC correspondent Iain Watson that was a misjudgement.
