Rebecca Long-Bailey and Richard Burgon have been confirmed on the full ballot of members, affiliates and registered supporters for the Labour leadership and deputy leadership respectively.
The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has this afternoon voted to endorse both candidates – giving both the backing required under Labour’s rules to get over the line into the final phase of the contests.
Congratulations to both candidates.
