Labour MP Angela Eagle has cancelled her constituency surgeries as a result of abuse directed at her.

The former Labour leadership contender said she had been advised by police not to hold the public advice sessions in her Wallasey constituency.

But Merseyside Police said the decision to cancel surgeries was a matter for the MP and her staff.

Ms Eagle told the Liverpool Echo: "Because we have been getting so much abuse direct to the office and the advice surgeries are normally done in public (the police) have sent me an email advising me to cancel them."

A brick was thrown through a window of the office last week.
