Jeremy Corbyn's head of policy Andrew Fisher has been suspended from the Labour Party pending a report by its ruling National Executive Committee, the party has announced.
Calls for Fisher to be expelled from the party started when he suggested people should back a Class War candidate at the general election, as well as angering senior Labour politicians with "abusive" tweets.
The Labour leader said he continues to have "full confidence" in Mr Fisher, who is understood to remain a member of Mr Corbyn's office.
Last week Fisher wrote to Iain McNicol, General Secretary of the Labour Party, to “completely and unreservedly apologise” for his tweet suggesting people should vote for the anarchist group, saying "it was a joke."
