Jeremy Corbyn has rejected calls for his resignation as he questioned the timing of the vote of no confidence submitted by Dame Margaret Hodge.
The Labour leader said the intervention was inappropriate due to "massive political issues" which need to be dealt with following the Brexit result.
Mr Corbyn confirmed his intention to deal with the aftermath of Britain's exit as party leader.
I'm carrying on. I'm making the case for unity, I'm making the case of what Labour can offer to Britain, of decent housing for people, of good secure jobs for people, of trade with Europe and of course with other parts of the world. Because if we don't get the trade issue right we've got a real problem in this country.
The leader of the UK's biggest trade union has said the country is 'riven' as a result of the EU referendum.
Len McCluskey told ITV News that the trade unions can help broker a peace deal and reunite the party now the "coup has failed".
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he would 'reach out' to MPs that oppose his leadership but said they should 'respect democracy'.
