Imran Hussain, MP for Bradford East and Shadow Minister for the New Deal for Working People has sensationally quit the Labour shadow cabinet.
Mr Hussain, a Labour frontbench MP for almost 8 years, said he was resigning from his role as his view on the Middle East conflict differed ‘substantially’ from Sir Keir Starmer’s.
The resignation comes as tensions continue to mount over a planned pro-Palestinian demonstration in London on Armistice Day.
The Met had urged organisers to "urgently reconsider" postponing the event on Saturday, but they insist they will press ahead with the march.
