Ed Miliband welcomes Lord Young's resignation

Labour leader, Ed Miliband, has welcomed the resignation of the Prime Minister's enterprise adviser, Lord Young, after he claimed most Britons "had never had it so good".

Mr Miliband said Lord Young's comments were "disgraceful" and his appointment as an adviser reflected badly on the prime minister.

No 10 said Mr Cameron had accepted the peer's resignation from the unpaid advisory role he took on last month.
