Online revamp for prime minister

Gordon Brown
Downing Street already has a Youtube site

Video footage of Gordon Brown is to appear online as part of a revamp of the Downing Street website.

Downing Street is launching the "No 10 TV" part of its site in an attempt to reach out to the public.

The site will feature exclusive video coverage of the prime minister's speeches, press conferences, media appearances and a news archive.

The announcement comes two years after Conservative leader David Cameron launched his own website, Webcameron.

In May Mr Brown launched an online version of prime minister's questions.

He pledged to respond to video-clip questions submitted via the Downing Street Youtube website.
