Burnham: 'Sad day for British politics'


UK Health Secretary Andy Burnham has said it is "a sad day" after the BNP won its first seat in the European Parliament.

He said Labour would work to address why voters chose the BNP, "and try to win these people back", before adding that voters in Burnley rejected the party after seeing them in power.
