DescriptionA Labour MP has accused John McDonnell of "letting his allies go after" Luciana Berger after a row erupted over her future in the party.

Ms Berger is facing a vote of no confidence from local members for criticising Jeremy Corbyn.

Shadow chancellor Mr McDonnell said she should reject claims she supported a "breakaway party" to show members she was "sticking with Labour".

But Nottingham East MP Chris Leslie said his response was "ridiculous".

Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson also backed Ms Berger, telling the Commons she had "our solidarity and... our support as she battles the bullying hatred from members of her own local party".
