Lord Mandelson praises 'dignified' Brown resignation

Lord Mandelson praised Gordon Brown for showing "giant dignity" as he resigned as Prime Minister.

Conservative leader David Cameron is the new Prime Minister after he accepted the Queen's request to form the next government.

His party won the most seats in the UK general election last week, but not an overall majority.
