Labour MP Emily Thornberry quits front bench over tweet

Labour's Emily Thornberry has resigned from the Labour front bench over a tweet she sent during the Rochester and Strood by-election campaign.

The shadow attorney general previously apologised for the tweet, which showed a terraced house with three England flags, and a white van parked outside.

Alongside the picture, she wrote: "Image from Rochester".
