Jeremy Corbyn sacks Europe spokesman Pat McFadden

Jeremy Corbyn ejected another senior figure from his top team tonight with Europe spokesman Pat McFadden losing his job for "disloyalty".

The leader's reshuffle claimed its second victim after more than 30 hours of apparently bitter internal battling over the shape of the shadow cabinet.

Earlier Michael Dugher announced he had been sacked from the culture brief, with uncertainty still surrounding the fates of shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn and shadow defence secretary Maria Eagle.

Pat Glass has been promoted to replace Mr McFadden, according to senior party sources.
