MPs 'may form a new party' if Corbyn stays

A Labour MEP has warned that the party could split if Mr Corbyn does not step down.

Mary Honeyball, who is MEP for the Labour Party in London, said: "Jeremy Corbyn's corrosive leadership has brought the Labour Party close to the edge, and tragically the party I know and love is now in imminent danger of imploding all together."

In an article in the New Statesman, she added: "There is a real possibility of Corbyn getting on the ballot paper and being re-elected. At that stage 200 MPs may form a new party.

"And if need be I will join them."
