Election 2015: The story behind Labour's election loss

The Labour MP Tristram Hunt has decided not to stand for the leadership of the party.

He says he will instead support Liz Kendall. Mr Hunt said the party's election defeat has been devastating, and attacked Ed Miliband's leadership as timid.

The Shadow Education Secretary is the latest to turn his back on Labour's campaign strategy.

In the first of a series looking behind the election result, the BBC's Special correspondent Lucy Manning examines Labour's loss.
