Labour leader Ed Miliband visits Israel

Labour leader Ed Miliband has said during a visit to Israel that he is a supporter of "the homeland for the Jewish people".

Taking questions at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, he said he had "a deep sense of gratitude to Israel for what they did for my grandmother".

She survived the Holocaust in Poland before emigrating to the country.

But Mr Miliband said he did not support everything the Israeli government did, criticising the growth in settlements.

Nick Robinson joined him for the visit.
