Labour MP Tristram Hunt has been mocked for fearing UKIP after resigning his Stoke-on-Trent seat.
The resignation of Hunt, who spent more than six years in Parliament, will trigger a by-election in Stoke, which is seen as a firmly pro-Brexit constituency.
In 2015 Hunt won a majority of just 5,179 over UKIP at the general election, on a turnout of just 19%. Many have suggested Labour's lurch to the hard left under Jeremy Corbyn, a move which has alienated many traditional supporters, will allow UKIP to claim the seat in the upcoming by-election.
