A week after Ed Miliband resigned as Labour leader one of the contenders for his job has had a double boost to his campaign today. North West MP Andy Burnham has fewer rivals in the race after shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna withdrew earlier today. Mr Burnham who kept his Leigh seat last week is one of the favourites to succeed. The shadow health secretary also joined Mr Umunna in the top five politicians with the biggest growth in Twitter followers since their party lost the election.

Farron has not yet said if he intends to run for the post but he is already being touted by colleagues Willie Rennie and Kirsty Williams as "an inspirational leader".

Rennie and Williams released a joint statement today that said: "Tim is a committed liberal, a brilliant communicator, an outstanding campaigner and an inspirational leader.

"With him as leader we can show that we are a compassionate, tolerant, internationalist, reformist party that looks beyond sectional interest to the greater good, to our children's future not just ours, that believes in partnership home and abroad, not division, that is liberal and democratic."
