Bradford West vote: Labour 'must learn' from result

Labour "must learn lessons from a very disappointing result" in the Bradford West by-election, deputy leader Harriet Harman has said.

George Galloway and his anti-war Respect Party won by 10,000 votes, destroying what had been a strong majority for Labour in the constituency.

Ms Harman told BBC News she believed the result was because of "a particular problem" with the relationship between Labour and the Bradford community.
