Jack Straw's tribute to 'family man' Tony Benn

Politicians and well-wishers gathered at Westminster on Thursday to bid an emotional farewell to former Labour minister Tony Benn.

Former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw was among the mourners and paid tribute to Mr Benn's "extraordinary devotion" to his family, who were "his anchor".

He also described Mr Benn as the "conscience of the Labour movement", and hailed his "enormous personal courage" in the face of media "vilification".
