So, Jeremy Corbyn is re-elected as Labour leader at the party conference in Liverpool.
So is that an end to the political in-fighting?
Not a bit of it. Our political correspondent Phil Hornby reports
Phil spoke to former Hove MP Ivor Caplin and South East Labour MEP Anneliese Dodds.
The leader of Portsmouth City Council's Labour Group has resigned from the party in protest at Jeremy Corbyn's re-election.
John Ferrett had been a party member for 27 years but said today that 'with sadness' he was standing down, because the party he campaigned for 'no longer exists'.
He said the party under Mr Corbyn had become a "protest movement that has no interest in winning power".
Mr Ferrett's principled stand has been praised across the political spectrum.
On Twitter today he has had messages of support from fellow Labour supporters and the Conservative leader of Portsmouth City Council Donna Jones:
Thanks Nick - it is painful but the party I've given my life to has changed beyond all recognition. Time to move on. https://t.co/S1qoAqCF8y
Mr Ferrett has long been a critic of Mr Corbyn. He spoke about the labour leader's 'inept leadership' after the party's poor showing in the local election in May
He will continue to serve as an independent councillor for the Paulsgrove ward
It's been a roller coaster few days for the Labour leader. The party faithful voted him to remain, but there's still dissent from many.Read the full story ›

An ex-footballer who saved his wife's life by spotting her cancer in time is raising awareness of the disease.

The couple are speaking out as part of this year's Stand Up to Cancer campaign.
Tracy, now 47, said: "It was a very difficult time in my life and for my family and I have my husband to thank for saving my life - and he knows it.
"He kept his greatest save for me - he literally saved my life.
"Now I feel it is my job to help others going through the same and make sure people know you can come out the other side."
