Labour has won the Glasgow North East by-election, sparked by Michael Martin's resignation as Commons Speaker in the wake of the MP expenses scandal.

Willie Bain polled 12,231 votes and said he was ''honoured'' to be the constituency's new MP.

He added it was ''a resounding victory for Gordon Brown and for Labour''.
