Referendum row in video

The Labour Party has been accused of being in "disarray" over whether there should be a referendum on Scottish independence.

On Sunday, Scottish Labour leader Wendy Alexander changed her stance on the issue when she called on the Scottish Government to "bring it on".

But Gordon Brown failed to support Miss Alexander when her comments were raised at Prime Minister's Questions.

Here are video clips of the key moments in the row:
