Andrew Mitchell is 'toast', says Miliband, as 'pleb' row continues

David Cameron and Ed Miliband have clashed over Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell's future after his row with police at the Downing Street gates.

The prime minister said that what Mr Mitchell "did and said" was wrong, but he had apologised and the officer involved had accepted it.

Mr Miliband said that despite the apology Mr Mitchell should not keep his job, suggesting that he was "toast".

The exchanges came during their weekly Prime Minister's Questions clash.
