Tony Benn: 'I'm not afraid of dying'

The veteran Labour politician Tony Benn, 88, has just released the final instalment of his diaries.

They reach 2009, when illness forced him to stop writing the daily entries that he started more than 60 years ago.

He has been speaking about his lifetime in Labour politics, his continuing appetite for campaigning and the significant challenges of old age.
