Andy Burnham launches bid for Greater Manchester Mayor

Shadow home secretary Andy Burnham has launched his campaign to become the Labour party's candidate for mayor of Greater Manchester.

In a speech at the Lowry in Salford, the Leigh MP outlined his vision of Greater Manchester as a "beacon of social justice" that leads the campaign for a more equal England.

Mr Burnham set out plans for a revolution in technical education, the country's first fully-integrated National Health and Care Service and major investment in new high-speed East-West rail across the North.
