By: Beth LittlerAround 100,000 people were expected to attend the Durham Miners' Gala, also known as The Big Meeting. Mr Miliband took to the balcony of the County Hotel as Labour leaders of the past have done for decades, watching some of the 80 or so miners' banners and around 50 brass bands parade past. Afterwards he addressed the large crowd on the old Racecourse, where he hit out at the bankers, Rupert Murdoch and "the rip-off" of Britain's energy companies.
