Mr Sheerman was one of 172 party mps who backed a motion of no confidence in the Labour leader against only 40 supporters.

The decisive vote has triggered a fresh leadership contest.

Commenting on his decision, Mr Sheerman said: “I told Jeremy yesterday that he had had a year to engage with beyond the party members who supported him to get elected as leader this year.

“But he hasn’t done that.

“I’m unhappy with his lack of vision and investment in the EU referendum.”

Mr Sheerman said he will back Wallasey MP and former shadow business secretary Angela Eagle to become the next leader.

“She’s part of a bright new generation and it’s about time that we had a good, strong woman leading the party. “She’s been brilliant in all she’s done, including in her role as shadow leader of the house.”

A top doctor behind a controversial hospital shake-up plan says he would rather PFI bailout money was spent on ‘care in the community’.

Campaigners have said that the Government could, in theory, bail Calderdale and Huddersfield Foundation Trust (CHFT) out of its £774m PFI obligations.

A single bell will toll from each of the three Cathedrals of Bradford, Ripon and Wakefield and scores of churches at the exact time hundred years ago that the first troops went over the top at the start of the Battle of the Somme.


People from across the region are invited to come and remember that darkest day in silence and prayers from 7.30am until 8am on Friday July 1.

The three Deans of the three cathedrals of the Church of England in Leeds (West Yorkshire and the Dales) will toll a single bell at 7.30am for five minutes. This will be followed by silence for ten minutes and then a further ten minutes of prayer to remember all those who lost their lives in what was to be the bloodiest battles of the First World War.


They will be joined in this intiative by around 50 churches across the diocese – from Skipton in the Dales, Bellerby and Leyburn in Wensleydale, Darton in Barnsley, Priory church at Bolton Abbey, scores of churches across Leeds, Huddersfield, Bradford and the Holmfirth areas.


On that day alone the British Army suffered almost 58,000 casualties. Most of the Leeds Pals and the Bradford Pals, along with the hundreds of other “pals” regiments formed up and down the country, perished on the same day in the same hour on the first day of the Battle of the Somme. The Battle which was to last until November 18 saw more than one million men wounded or killed.


The Dean of Wakefield, the Very Revd Jonathan Greener, said: “The loss of life on that day in our towns, cities and villages here in Yorkshire will never be forgotten.

In total, over one million were killed or wounded on all sides as for five months British and French armies engaged the Germans in a futile battle of attrition on a 15-mile front in northern France.
