Angela Rayner has reportedly been sacked as chair of the Labour Party following a humbling string of local election results.
Patrick Maguire, a reporter for The Times, has claimed that a Labour party source had confirmed Ms Rayner has been removed.
Responding to the announcement Momentum’s co-chair, Gaya Sriskanthan said the sacking equated to “blatant scapegoating”.
It comes after the Labour leader said he would take “full responsibility” for the results.
