Dewsbury MP Paula Sherriff has quit her role in Jeremy Corbyn’’s Labour Party leadership team,.

She had been working as Parliamentary Private Secretary to shadow communities secretary Jon Trickett.

She declined to make a statement and her constituency office would only confirm the move.

Mrs Sherriff became the town’s MP last year, with a comprehensive victory over former Tory MP Simon Reevell.

Poltical analysts are saying that it is part of a wave of resignations from Jeremy Corbyn’s top team.

Catherine McKinnell today quit as shadow attorney general - the first such decision by a member of Mr Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet.

Three resignations last week, by Kevan Jones, Jonathan Reynolds and Stephen Doughty, were all by more junior members of Labour’s frontbench team.

After the string of scalps, Labour sources insisted they had managed to put a lid on rebellions at the top of the party.

But Ms McKinnell said she would return to the back benches after it became “increasingly difficult not to speak up in the Commons”.
