Labour leader Ed Miliband has been questioned about his local knowledge in an interview with BBC Wiltshire.

Asked by the BBC's Ben Prater whether he thought Jim Grant was doing a good job, he said: "Lots of Labour representatives are doing a good job right across the country."

Pressed on whether he knew who Mr Grant - the leader of the Labour group on Swindon Borough Council - was, Mr Miliband replied: "You'll enlighten me, I'm sure."
