GMB union cuts funding for Labour from £1.2m to £150,000

The GMB is to cut the affiliation funds it gives the Labour party from 2014, it has announced.

The union's donation will drop from £1.2m to £150,000.

It comes ahead of Ed Miliband's move to reform union funding so individual union members have to opt in to support the party, rather than being automatically affiliated.

James Landale reports.
