Ed Miliband: How I forgot sections of conference speech

Ed Miliband forgot elements of his speech at the Labour party conference in Manchester.

Mr Miliband had written sections on immigration and the deficit which he forgot to include.

He told BBC Breakfast that he uses pre-written speeches only as "a basis" of what he will say and "some of it got left out".

The Labour leader explained that he preferred to speak "from the top of his head" than say something pre-prepared.
