The Labour leader Ed Miliband said he is "incredibly disappointed" by the by-election results in Bradford West and said he would visit the constituency to "talk to people there about why this result happened".

He said: “Clearly there were local factors, but I also say only four out of 10 people voted for the three mainstream political parties. We've got to understand the reasons why that happened in Bradford."
