Labour leadership: Harriet Harman 'confident' checks are robust

The four contenders in the Labour leadership race have been meeting acting party leader Harriet Harman over concerns about the conduct of the ballot.

Thousands of ballot papers could be in the hands of what leadership candidate Andy Burnham has called "Tory infiltrators" attempting to skew the vote.

There have also been complaints from hundreds of Labour supporters who claim their attempts to vote are being blocked.

Acting party leader Harriet Harman maintains that the checks being carried out on who can and cannot vote are robust.
