A close ally of Ed Miliband has been accused of hypocrisy by the Tories in the United Kingdom following reports Chuka Umunn accepted a £20,000 gift from a gambling executive.

A rising star in the cabinet, Umunn has been highly critical of betting shops during his campaign.

He accepted the donation from Neil Goulden, the chairman emeritus of the Gala Coral Group, which owns more than 1,700 bookmakers.

The Tories were quick to point out that Umunn ran a campaign in his south London seat of Streatham in which he promised “new powers to control the number of betting shops”.

Mr Umunna registered the gift last month and said he would use it to support his office and contribute towards staff costs.

A spokesman said: “This donation was made by an individual Labour Party supporter in a personal capacity and was accepted in accordance with the rules and properly declared.”
