Labour Party veteran Alan Johnson, leader of the Labour In campaign in the run-up to Friday's historic EU referendum, has attacked Jeremy Corbyn's office, claiming it was "working against the rest of the Party" at times.

His email attack Alan on Corbyn's role in the referendum campaign comes as dozens of the party's MPs have resigned from their positions in a protest against the leader.

The referendum result was a huge blow. The turmoil and uncertainty it has unleashed will I fear affect our country for many years.

As Chair of ‘Labour In For Britain’ I take my share of responsibility for the way the Labour campaign was run. I couldn’t have wished for a better Head of the campaign than Brian Duggan; and our Labour Party staff and activists, from Iain McNicol to our Regional staff and CLPs, were magnificent. They cannot be blamed for the outcome and should be very proud of the work they did.

Everyone else needs to make their own assessment as to whether more could have been done to prevent this disastrous result. I will certainly do this, as I hope will the Leader’s Office. At times it felt as if they were working against the rest of the Party and had conflicting objectives.

I was proud to work with some great people who tried their very best to get the result we all wanted. Nobody in the Leadership had the right to undermine their efforts.

– Alan Johnson

They will get there in time for the opening ceremony of the 2016 games in Brazil.

Since then her family has continued fundraising in her name and collected millions of pounds.

They are hoping to raise thousands from this challenge, by riding up to 90 miles a day. But for Mike Tomlinson it is more than that.

He said today: "This is very personal for me. Jane was dying when she was riding across America so what excuse have I got not to complete this challenge to Rio".

The team, which includes tv presenter Charlie Webster from Sheffield and former rugby league player Paul Highton is due to complete the journey in 6 weeks.
