Labour leadership candidate Liz Kendall has warned that Labour needs to set up "radical" devolution powers in England after the rise of the SNP in Scotland. 

Ms Kendall, widely regarded as the Blarite candidate in the leadership contest, said there was a "growing sense of grievance" in England that would force the issue of devolution to the fore. 

The Shadow Health Minister has asked her leadership backer, Tristram Hunt, to produce a blueprint outlining further devolutionary powers for England to run more of its own affairs.
