Potential Labour leaders debate Iraq war

The Labour party leadership candidates clashed over the Iraq war in a BBC Radio 5 live debate. David Miliband told Victoria Derbyshire and an audience made up of 5 live listeners "in retrospect, looking back, we got it wrong".

Andy Burnham, meanwhile stood by his decision to support the war, saying "Did I do the right thing for the right reasons? Yes I believe I did".

And Ed Miliband questioned Ed Balls asking "Do you recognise that we hitched our wagon to the United States which I think was a profound mistake".

You can listen to Victoria Derbyshire 10:00- 12:00 on BBC Radio 5 live.
