Burnham to join Labour leader race


Former health secretary Andy Burnham is set to become the fifth contender in the race to succeed Gordon Brown as Labour leader.

Mr Burnham, who had been widely tipped to run, is expected to formally declare his candidacy on Thursday.

On Wednesday, former children's secretary Ed Balls and left-winger John McDonnell confirmed that they would be contenders.

David Miliband and his brother Ed - the former foreign and energy secretaries - announced last week they would be running.
