Ed Miliband chooses jobs over pay rises

Labour leader Ed Miliband has defended his party's decision to support the government's pay freeze for public sector workers.

He said it was "a hard choice", but when faced with either protecting jobs or giving pay rises, it was "right to protect jobs''.

Unions have criticised the move, accusing Labour of "emulating the Tories on many issues".
