Seven MPs quit Labour Party in protest at Jeremy Corbyn's leadership
Seven Labour MPs have resigned from the party to sit in the House of Commons as independents, in the most significant split since the breakaway of the Social Democratic Party in the early 1980s. Luciana Berger, Chris Leslie, Angela Smith, Gavin Shuker, Mike Gapes, Ann Coffey and Chuka Umunna, from the party's centrist wing, have been among the loudest critics of Jeremy Corbyn's leadership, his stance on Brexit and his handling of allegations of anti-Semitism.

The children spent time enjoying the trampolining facilities during Harry's visit, while others played pool.
The duke described youth centres where young people have for generations met to do activities and socialise, as vital "community" hubs providing spaces where they could talk about the issues affecting them.
Speaking later about some of the issues with panel discussion groups, he said: "We're adding to social isolation, whether it's the nine-year-old on the phone, or on computer games or whatever it is, for young people nowadays to be caught up in a world like this, we are adding to a whole list of issues that already existed.

"And then by closing places like this down - the one place which they really have to come and have a normal conversation, be it about mental health, their lifestyle, issues at home, whatever it is.
"We all understand it, we all get it, but these places are literally a community hub, and I don't think people over the years have actually understood or realised how vital this is to the younger generation."
Launched in 2016, Fit and Fed is a campaign led by StreetGames which aims to tackle the holiday gap of hunger, inactivity and isolation.
The project offers activity sessions and a nutritious meal every day for local children and the duke has visited a number of the pro
