Miliband to remain on the board of Sunderland

David Miliband is to remain a member of the Sunderland board despite stepping down as MP for South Shields.

The former foreign secretary has announced he is leaving UK politics to take up a post with the United States-based charity the International Rescue Committee.

However, Mr Miliband, who joined the Black Cats' board as a vice-chairman and non-executive director in 2011, will maintain his links with the club.
