Labour peer Lord Blunkett has said that Labour needs to work out what it stands for before it embarks on a search for a new leader.

The former cabinet minister said he was "not in favour" of Jeremy Corbyn remaining at the head of the party long-term but added "throwing eggs at him at the moment actually isn't going to change anything".

Until the Labour Party actually knows what its new leader stands for and how that's going to relate both to the instincts of the electorate and the reality of globalisation, we are not going to get anywhere.

That is the most enormous challenge for all social democratic parties around the world and I don't have a simple answer.

– Lord Blunkett

Lord Blunkett spoke out on Radio 4 Today programme as Mr Corbyn faces growing calls to resign.

He added: "Jeremy isn't the problem. His project and those around him are the problem."

Brian Madderson, chairman of the Petrol Retailers Association, said a rise of 2.5p per litre would be expected if the US dollar continues to trade at around 1.35 to the pound.

"I would think certainly by early to middle of next week we'll see prices moving upwards", he added.

In a statement issued on Friday, the AA also predicted an increase in prices: "Assuming that current market conditions persist over the next 10-14 days, the price of petrol at some fuel stations might be expected to rise by 2.25p a litre or £1.25 a tank."
