Exeter MP Ben Bradshaw WILL stand as deputy leader of the Labour Party after a last-minute scramble to secure support from 35 of his colleagues.
In the end he got the backing of 37 of them - following a late surge in support just before the midday deadline.
Our presenter Ian Axton interviewed him earlier today - about the scramble for support AND his attitude to the candidates for the Labour leadership.

Mr Bradshaw is one of five candidates for the deputy leadership. The winner will be announced in September.
