Milibands deny family rift one year on

DAVID Miliband dismissed reports of a rift with brother Ed as "hooey and nonsense" as he paid a fleeting visit to the Labour conference in Liverpool.

Addressing a meeting exactly a year after losing the party leadership to his younger brother, the former foreign secretary insisted that he wanted to see Ed in 10 Downing Street and Labour back in power.

Meanwhile, Ed Miliband told BBC1's 'Andrew Marr Show' that the pair had "moved on" since last year's dramatic leadership election.

Asked if he would welcome his brother back in to a senior role, he said: "Of course I would. But that, in the end, is his decision."
