Jeremy Corbyn has announced six further appointments to Labour's shadow cabinet.
Defence: Kate Hollern MP
Education: Jenny Chapman MP
Justice: Jo Stevens MP
Transport: Andy McDonald MP
Work and Pensions: Angela Rayner MP
Foreign: Fabian Hamilton MP
Three of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's shadow ministers walked out on him on Wednesday, launching a bruising attack as they went.
They were angered by sackings they claim were "vindictive" and "stupid".
ITV News Deputy Political Editor Chris Ship reports:
Two former Labour frontbenchers who resigned after Jeremy Corbyn's shadow cabinet reshuffle have told ITV News that it was a mistake for the party leader to sack former Europe shadow minister Pat McFadden.
Shadow Rail Minister Jonathan Reynolds said that the "majority of British people" would agree with McFadden's comments in relation to the Paris atrocities, which was seen as a thinly-veiled criticism of the party leader's line.
Shadow foreign affairs minister Stephen Doughty, who resigned shortly after Reynolds, said he would have said "exactly the same things" that McFadden said about terrorism.
I'm very dismayed at the way [Pat McFadden has] been sacked and handled in that way. I think it is only honourable given that I have the same views as him that I should step away at this time.
Shadow Armed Forces Minister, Kevan Jones, is the latest to resign following Jeremy Corbyn's frontbench reshuffle.
Announcing his resignation on Twitter with a copy of his letter to the party leader, the Durham MP cited the issue of Trident as the reason for moving to the backbench.

Labour MP Stephen Doughty is the latest frontbencher to resign, quitting his post live on TV.
The shadow foreign affairs minister made the announcement to viewers of BBC Daily Politics show on Wednesday.
He said that he believed resigning was the "honourable" thing for him to do because he disagreed with the sacking of Pat McFadden.
Maria Eagle, who replaced Michael Dugher as Shadow Culture Secretary in Jeremy Corbyn's latest reshuffle, has said she is "pleased" with the appointment.
In a statement on Twitter, she said that culture, arts and sport are an "important part of our national life" and pledged to "take (the Tories) to task" on issues including the BBC and Leveson.
Pleased to have been appointed to new role as Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (1/4)
Culture, the arts & sport are an important part of our national life but under this Tory Govt we have seen them suffer from huge cuts (2/4)
The Tories have also launched an attack one of our most treasured institutions - the BBC. I will take them to task on these issues (3/4)
And will be calling on the Government to proceed with the implementation of the proposals put forward by Leveson (4/4)
