Lord Prescott: Police 'must act' over Miliband egging

Former deputy prime minister Lord Prescott has told ITV News he thinks the police should question a man who threw eggs at Labour leader Ed Miliband in south London today.

The Metropolitan police has told ITV News it will not be making any arrests as Mr Miliband "did not wish to take the matter any further."

But Lord Prescott has insisted there needs to be a clear message that it is "unacceptable for public people or individuals to be assaulted simply for publicity".
