How do I set labels using the clone issue post-function from Script Runner?

This may be an extremely noob question but how do I set a label in the Additional issue actions? I can see how to set specific fields, but I can't see the method for labels (I tried the custom field script, but that didn't work either).

A small problem with Rambanams code is, that the issue doesn't exist at the time the additional issue actions are executed. The following slightly modified code works:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.label.Label
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.label.LabelParser


def labels = new HashSet<Label>()
labels.addAll(issue.labels)
labels.addAll(LabelParser.buildFromString("NewLabel"))
issue.setLabels(labels)

I have been bashing my head against the wall for days with this exact problem.

Big Thanks.

the following code we use in java, so you can convert to groovy

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.label.Label;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.label.LabelParser;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;


MutableIssue mutIssue =ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(issue.getKey());
Set&lt;Label&gt; labels = new HashSet&lt;Label&gt;();
labels.addAll(mutIssue.getLabels());
labels.addAll(LabelParser.buildFromString("New Label"));
mutIssue.setLabels(labels);
