Lord Mandelson has been blamed for the "disaster" of Labour's general election campaign by one of Gordon Brown's closest allies.

In the first indication of a backlash against the former business secretary over his forthcoming memoirs, Charlie Whelan said Lord Mandelson had run the worst election campaign "in Labour's history".

Mr Whelan, political director of the Unite union, is a former press secretary to Mr Brown and remained close to him when he was prime minister.
