Labour's Ed Miliband to launch local election campaign

Ed Miliband will launch Labour's local elections campaign on Monday in Birmingham, highlighting the issues of crime, the NHS and jobs.

He is also expected to accuse the Conservatives of being "out-of-touch" over the Budget, donations for Downing Street dinners and petrol panic-buying.

Local authority elections take place in England, Scotland and Wales on 3 May.
