Fresh bid to oust Unite union boss Len McCluskey

A bid to oust Len McCluskey as the leader of the Unite union is to be launched later.

The trade union regulator will be asked to rule that Unite's recent general secretary election - which Mr McCluskey won by 5,500 votes - was invalid.

The defeated candidate in the contest, Gerard Coyne, says his supporters suffered bullying and intimidation.

A spokeswoman for Unite said its members would be deeply disappointed by the timing of the announcement.
