Labour calls for independent inquiry into Cruddas boast

Labour is demanding an independent inquiry into a Tory treasurer's boast that large donations to the party could secure access to the prime minister.

Peter Cruddas quit as Tory co-treasurer after his claims, filmed by undercover Sunday Times reporters, were published.

David Cameron has pledged to hold a party inquiry into the claims, which he described as "completely unacceptable".

But Labour leader Ed Miliband said that that was not good enough and a "proper independent investigation" was needed.

Robin Brant reports.
