David Miliband awaits 'final score' in leadership contest

Labour leadership contender David Miliband has arrived in Manchester ahead of the result of the contest.

He joked with reporters about his appearance and said he had "fought a good campaign".

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.

Most observers believe it is too close to call between the Miliband brothers, with second and third preference votes likely to prove decisive.
