Labour conference: Miliband dismisses union attack

Labour leader, Ed Miliband, has dismissed an attack by the head of Unite, Britain's biggest trade union.

On the opening day of Labour's annual conference, Len McCluskey told the Sunday Times he would "kick the New Labour cuckoos out of our nest".

Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Mr Miliband dismissed a suggestion unions were still "pulling strings", and when asked for his personal response to Mr McCluskey's comments, replied: "He's wrong."
