Chuka Umunna: 'I will be standing for Labour leadership'

Chuka Umunna has said he wants to stand for the leadership of the Labour party.

He posted a video on Facebook with the announcement, while he was out meeting activists in Swindon.

He said he wanted to be part of a ''really big Labour team, getting Labour back into office, changing this country and building a fairer and more equal society''.

The BBC's Norman Smith said he expected a ''cast of four'' candidates to run for the position.

Labour is expected to set out the timetable for the leadership election on Wednesday.
