MP Daniel Zeichner said he'll remain committed to fighting for both Cambridge and Labour after resigning from the party's frontbench over the party's policy on Brexit.

The Labour MP stepped down from his position as Shadow Transport Minister in order to vote in favour of an amendment to the Queen's Speech supporting the UK's membership of the single market - despite leader Jeremy Corbyn telling MPs to abstain.

Mr Zeichner said it's been an honour to serve on the frontbench under Jeremy Corbyn.
