Co-founder and former leader of the SDP Lord Owen has donated "over £7,500" to Labour, having hailed its "brave and bold" change to its links with the unions.

The former Labour cabinet minister made the announcement after the party voted in favour of leader Ed Miliband's reforms on Saturday.

In response, Mr Miliband said he was delighted to have Lord Owen's support and that it showed his party was reaching out and "winning people back to our cause".
