Backbench MP Jon Cruddas has said he will not stand for the leadership of the Labour Party.

Mr Cruddas, who came third in the deputy leadership race in 2007 and is a former adviser to Tony Blair, has maintained strong union links.

He said he had given it serious thought but would not be standing.

Only brothers David and Ed Miliband have officially declared they will run to replace Gordon Brown - although Ed Balls has not ruled himself out.
