The Labour leadership contender Jeremy Corbyn addresses a full house of party supporters at Middlesbrough Town Hall earlier today.
The visit came ahead of the party leadership election which was triggered by the resignation earlier in the year of Ed Miliband following the party’s defeat at the general election. Four candidates were successfully nominated to stand: Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper, Jeremy Corbyn and Liz Kendall. The voting process began on Friday 14 August 2015 and will close on Thursday 10 September 2015, with the results being announced on Saturday 12 September 2015. Voting is by Labour Party members and registered and affiliated supporters, using the alternative voting system.
