The general secretary of the union Unite, Len McCluskey, has told BBC Newsnight's Jeremy Paxman that Labour leader Ed Miliband should rule out a post-election coalition with the Liberal Democrats.

Labour's biggest union backer says the Labour leader should govern as a minority government in the event that Labour does not win the 2015 general election outright but is the biggest party.
