The new Labour MP for Corby and East Northamptonshire will take his seat in the House of Commons later today.

Andy Sawford won Thursday's by-election, which was triggered by the departure of Conservative Louise Mensch who decided to emigrate to American to spend more time with her family.

He's told ITV News he'll work "incredibly hard" to repay the trust of the people who voted for him.
