Scottish Labour to unveil new leader

Scottish Labour is set to announce its new leader, with former UK cabinet minister Jim Murphy the perceived frontrunner to win the contest.

The MP and former Scottish secretary is standing against MSPs Neil Findlay and Sarah Boyack.

Johann Lamont quit the leadership in October, accusing Westminster colleagues of treating Labour in Scotland like a "branch office".

Laura Bicker reports.
