Ed Miliband has apologised for the offence caused to people on Merseyside after being photographed with a special World Cup edition of The Sun newspaper.

The photo has prompted a Labour city councillor there to resign.

All three main Westminster party leaders were all pictured holding the paper.

It has been widely boycotted in Liverpool after it reported what turned out to be lies about Liverpool fans in the wake of the Hillsborough disaster.

Chris Mason reports.
