Labour's party conference looks set to go ahead next month after a row over security was resolved.

A question mark had been hanging over the annual gathering after G4S said it was now too late for it to step in and organise protection arrangements for next month's conference in Liverpool.

But Labour's general secretary Iain McNicol said OCS Group will now carry out the task of providing security at the conference venue.

"I am happy to announce we have agreed that OCS Group, the existing provider of security services at ACC Liverpool, will deliver security for the Labour Party conference," he said.
