Labour manifesto launch breaks election rules

Labour's election manifesto launch in a hospital was immediately embroiled in controversy amid claims the party broke election rules.

Strict guidelines prevent political parties from using NHS sites for electioneering.

In bitter scenes as the key event threatened to flop, journalists quizzing Gordon Brown from the BBC, Sky News and The Sun were also booed at the bad tempered event.
It's be more of a miracle if they didn't break any rules.
