Labour's Dan Jarvis "not going anywhere", despite colleagues' defections to Independent Group of MPs

Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.

Dan Jarvis MP has told ITV Calendar he is disappointed about recent defections from Labour, but recognised the "very genuinely-held concerns" people have about the "completely unacceptable levels of antisemitism" seen in the party and in wider society.

However, he denied any upcoming defection on his own part, declaring: "I'm not going anywhere." He said he "had more than enough on" already, as both a Labour MP for Barnsley Central and as the Sheffield City Region mayor.
