Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Diane Abbott has sent a defiant tweet to her supporters this morning, saying she'll "return to the fray soon".

Abbott was replaced as shadow home secretary earlier by West Ham MP Lyn Brown today, with Labour sources citing ill health.

Her shadow cabinet colleague Barry Gardiner said she had a "serious, long-term condition" in an interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer.

She made this post on Twitter: 

Abbott was replaced as shadow home secretary with one day to go until the main General Election.
