Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has told Meridian that his party must show unity, after he was re-elected with overwhelming support from party members.

But there's still dissent in the ranks- with John Ferrett, the leader of the Labour group in Portsmouth quitting the party today, saying it's no longer a credible opposition.

The only two local Labour MPs - Peter Kyle and Alan Whitehead - have also criticised Mr Corbyn's leadership.

Mr Kyle has come under pressure from some activists in Brighton and Hove who want him replaced- it all adds up to a bit of a soap opera.

This from our political correspondent Phil Hornby.
