Pat McFadden has been sacked as shadow Europe minister over "disloyalty" to leader Jeremy Corbyn, Labour Party sources said.

The leader's reshuffle claimed its second victim after more than 30 hours of apparently bitter internal battling over the shape of the shadow cabinet.

Mr McFadden had warned Mr Corbyn against carrying out a "purge" of moderates.

The leadership is also believed to have been infuriated by his thinly veiled criticism of Mr Corbyn's response to the Paris attacks and suggestion that security services should not "shoot to kill" terrorists on the streets of London.

Pat Glass has been promoted to replace Mr McFadden, according to senior party sources.
