Lord Prescott has declared he will be "campaigning in his coffin" despite being defeated in last week's police and crime commissioner elections.
The former Hull East MP lost out to Conservative Matthew Grove in the race to become the first Commissioner for the Humberside Police force.
Speaking to the Hull Daily Mail, Lord Prescott said: "I don't think I'll stand for election again but I will forever be a politician and campaigner. It is who I am and the party I am in."
"I'm not going to be sitting around in my slippers. I will be campaigning in my coffin. This is the beauty of being in the Lords, I'm still involved politics."
Candidates hoping to be elected as the first Police and Crime Commissioner for the Humberside Force have been out speaking to voters.
Five candidates are standing to become the first Police and Crime Commissioner for the South Yorkshire Police Force area.
Four candidates are standing to become the first Police and Crime Commissioner for the Lincolnshire Police Force area.
