The race for leadership of the Labour party

Pollster Ben Page talks to the BBC about the possible outcomes in the Labour Party leadership contest.

The winner is expected to be announced at about 1640 BST on Saturday.

David and Ed Miliband, Ed Balls, Andy Burnham and Diane Abbott are in the running to replace Gordon Brown, who quit after Labour lost the election.

MPs and MEPs, party members and members of trade unions and allied organisations took part in the vote.

Each of the three components counts for a third of the overall result, but with those taking part casting second, third and fourth preference ballots, it is difficult to predict the outcome.
