Johann Lamont has resigned as leader of the Scottish Labour Party accusing the Westminster leadership of treating the party in Scotland as a "branch office".
Ed Miliband's position as leader of the Labour party has been called into question by outgoing chair of the Scottish Labour Party Johann Lamont.
The criticism is another setback for Mr Miliband with just six months to go until a General Election as ITV News Political Correspondent Libby Weiner reports:
Britain has said it is "concerned and saddened" by the execution of an Iranian woman for killing a man she claimed was trying to sexually assault her.
Foreign Office minister Tobias Ellwood said there were "questions around due process" in the case of 26-year-old Reyhaneh Jabbari, who was hanged in a Tehran prison.
He also warned that such actions would not help Iran revive relations with the rest of the world.
Mr Ellwood said: "I am very concerned and saddened that (the death penalty) has been used in the case of Reyhaneh Jabbari where there have been questions around due process. Actions like these do not help Iran build confidence or trust with the international community."
Relatives and friends of people who died while in police custody have marched to Downing Street to demand justice for their loved ones.
The United Families and Friends group, which organised the event, said about 300 protesters took part in the annual procession, which started in Trafalgar Square and marched down Whitehall.
Activists carried placards which read "No Justice No Peace" and banners in memory of those such as musician Sean Rigg, who died after being restrained at Brixton police station, south London, in August 2008.
Deborah Coles, director for the Inquest campaign group, said the procession was an "important but poignant" day for the families.
She added: "Many families feel betrayed by a system that has let them down.The same issues repeat themselves time and again despite the empty platitudes from Government ministers that lessons will be learned."
