Exeter's MP Ben Bradshaw will stand for Labour deputy leadership, after getting the last of the 35 names he needed in a last-minute scramble for nominations.
Late yesterday he was still ten short of the number of backers he needed, but managed to get enough to get him over the line by today's midday deadline.
He is one of five candidates for the deputy post, and the winner will be announced in September.
