MP Sarah Champion quits shadow cabinet

ROTHERHAM MP Sarah Champion (pictured) has stepped down from her shadow ministerial role.

This afternoon, she became the latest member of Jeremy Corbyn’s shadow cabinet to quit as pressure grows on the Labour leader.

Ms Champion, who was shadow minister for preventing abuse, tweeted at just after 5pm: “I have just stepped down from my shadow minister job, but not my responsibilities to my constituents, party or victims of abuse”.

Wentworth and Dearne MP John Healey stood down from his shadow housing minister role yesterday, calling for fresh leadership in the wake of the EU referendum result.

Mr Corbyn lost a confidence vote this afternoon but has refused to resign.
