Labour leader Ed Miliband has rejected claims his party is anti-English after one of his shadow cabinet stood down for what her critics described as a "sneering" tweet on the Rochester campaign trail.

But as ITV News Political Correspondent Carl Dinnen reports, he received support from Mr Miliband, who said: "There is nothing unusual or odd about having England flags in your window."
