Eric Joyce criticises Unite over Falkirk selection

The MP for Falkirk, Eric Joyce, has accused Unite union officials of acting arrogantly and irresponsibly in the row over the selection of a Labour candidate in the seat.

He claimed the union tried to install its preferred candidate and he added that Labour party rules needed to be changed.

Labour has told the police of alleged irregularities but Unite has dismissed the claims as nonsense.

Ross Hawkins reports.
