Chuka Umunna pulls out of Labour leadership race

Labour's Chuka Umunna has pulled out of the contest to be the next Labour leader, following Ed Miliband's resignation.

The shadow business secretary was considered by the bookies to be a front-runner for the job.

But Mr Umunna said that since becoming a candidate for party leader, the pressure on him, and the level of scrutiny on those close to him, had prompted him to reconsider.
