Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson has said a local party branch is being investigated over its alleged treatment of MP Luciana Berger.

Mr Watson accused Liverpool Wavertree branch members of "bullying" the MP and trying to drive her out.

The branch scrapped a meeting to discuss a no-confidence motion in Ms Berger after an angry backlash.

It said it had "no control" over motions tabled by members and rejected claims of bullying and anti-Semitism.

Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Mr Watson said: "That motion should never have been moved in her local party, the meeting to hear it should never have been scheduled."

He said Mr Corbyn had "made it clear these things are not done in his name", and they "are not helping him, they are harming the reputation of the Labour Party".

Mr Watson added: "I don't want any MP or any member of the Labour Party to feel they're being bullied and driven out, and what's happening to her is completely unacceptable, which is why I called for the local party to be suspended."

Well done Labour and Tom, for countering such hate that is constantly coming from the Far left
