Labour veteran Louise Ellman has quit the party after 55 years.

The member of parliament for Liverpool Riverside, who is herself Jewish, said she "has seen the rise of anti-Semitism and extremism" under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership.

She added that she thinks the party is "institutionally anti-Semitic" and can no longer support Mr Corbyn's leadership with a General Election "looming".
