Lord Owen 'could vote for Labour' under Miliband

Lord Owen, a founder of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), says he could rejoin Labour after being impressed by Ed Miliband's leadership.

The former foreign secretary, who left Labour to help form the breakaway SDP 30 years ago, said he would "certainly consider voting" for his old party.

He also said that he has been in contact with Mr Miliband.

He told BBC1's Politics Show Mr Miliband had performed "extremely well" since becoming Labour leader.
