Lord Baker warns that UK could be broken up

A Conservative-Labour coalition may be needed after May's election to prevent the SNP holding the balance of power, a former Tory chairman has suggested.

Lord Baker of Dorking told the BBC that he was not advocating such a deal, but warned that there was a "great threat" the UK could be broken up in the future.

"I think there is a great need in our country to resolve what should happen with regards to devolution for all parts of the United Kingdom", he added.
