Alistair Darling, who served as chancellor under Gordon Brown, has died at the age of 70, his family has confirmed.

The Labour Party stalwart became a household name when the then-prime minister gave him the keys to the Treasury back in 2007 - running the department throughout the global banking crisis and staying in post until Mr Brown lost the election in 2010.

But he had been a presence in Tony Blair's government from the start, beginning as chief secretary to the Treasury in 1997 following Labour's landslide victory, and going on to run a number of departments - including work and pensions, transport and trade.
