Jeremy Corbyn has faced fresh calls to stand down as Labour leader from on one of his own MPs.
Frank Field said Mr Corbyn should resign immediately for the good of the party as "nobody thinks" he could lead Labour to victory if a snap election is called when David Cameron stands down this autumn.
He also accused the leader of mixing some positive debate on globalisation with "serious claptrap" in other areas in comments to the Radio 4 Today programme.
A largely dry and bright start.
Scattered showers will develop during the morning, these becoming heavy and thundery, and persisting into the afternoon.
Some sunny spells are likely between showers.
Maximum Temperature19 °C.
