Ed Miliband: 'People don't care if PM is married'

New Labour leader Ed Miliband has said he thinks people are "relaxed" over whether or not the prime minister is married.

He and his partner Justine Thornton have a one-year-old son but are not married.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, Mr Miliband said: "I think marriage is a very important institution, but there are stable families that aren't married and stable families that are married".
