Labour NEC representative fears some members will no longer have a voice

Ellie Reeves has just been voted off the Labour National Executive after being a representative for 10 years.

Ms Reeves said that being backed by Jeremy Corbyn and Momentum "seems to have been a prerequisite" for getting elected to the NEC.

Speaking to Martha Kearney on the World at One, she raised concerns that the 70,000 members who did vote for her would no longer have a voice on the committee, now that "one faction of the party has taken all six places".
