Labour will continue to provide support for now independent MP Jared O'Mara

The Labour Party will continue to provide support to controversial Sheffield Hallam MP Jared O'Mara, even though he has quit the party.

The 36-year-old resigned just days after he was re-instated following his suspension last year for offensive online comments.

Last week Mr O'Mara revealed he had tried to take his own life three times over the past 9 months.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has told Calendar that he is so concerned about his former MP's welfare he's pledged continued support for him.
