Labour soul-searching after disastrous election result

Ed Miliband has resigned as Labour leader, after his dream of entering Number Ten was shattered on a devastating night for Labour, with the party performing worse than in 2010.

The Shadow chancellor Ed Balls headed a list of high-profile casualties.

Mr Miliband said he took "absolute and total responsibility" for the party's defeat.
