Six Labour shadow cabinet members have quit, and more resignations are expected, in protest at Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership over the EU referendum.

Heidi Alexander, Ian Murray, Gloria de Piero, Lillian Greenwood, Lucy Powell and Kerry McCarthy have all resigned.

It comes after Mr Corbyn sacked shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn.
