Labour Leadership – Jeremy Corbyn

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.

Grassroots – Redcar (II)

As the days between now and the General Election in May gradually slip away the pre-election machines are starting to increase their activities in the marginal areas where a guaranteed victory in the polls might not be as forthcoming as in some other areas. Redcar on Teesside is one of these seats and after a couple of recent visits to the area by Labour MP’s it was time for the party leader Ed Miliband to come to town.

During the visit to Redcar and Cleveland College he addressed members of the public in a People’s Question Time event where following a short introductory speech by the Labour Party candidate for Redcar and Cleveland Anna Turley, he took part in a question and answer session before sitting and chatting with a few of the attending visitors.


I was on assignment for Getty Images covering the event and below are a selection of some of the pictures from the visit edited into black and white. Colour versions are available on the Getty Images website… HERE
