Miliband to select shadow cabinet

The Labour Party has announced the 19 MPs elected to the shadow cabinet.

Former Work and Pensions Secretary Yvette Cooper topped the poll, while her husband Ed Balls came third.

But some top figures from the previous government missed out. Now, it is up to Labour leader Ed Miliband to allocate posts to the winners.

The BBC's Ross Hawkins reports.
