A Labour MP has written to Jeremy Corbyn asking to be reinstated to the party's shadow cabinet just over a month after she declared the leader's role to be “untenable”.

Sarah Champion quit her role as shadow home office minister for preventing abuse and domestic violence in late June.

However, Champion has now written to the Labour leader to ask for her old role back, a request that Corbyn has accepted.

In an email sent to Corbyn obtained by Guido Fawkes, Champion said:I would like to formally retract my resignation and ask to be reinstated to my role as Shadow Home Office minister for preventing abuse and domestic violence with immediate effect.”

Champion could not be reached for comment.

However, a spokesman for Corbyn confirmed the re-appointment, stating: “Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, is pleased to announce the appointment of Sarah Champion MP who is re-joining the Labour’s front bench as shadow home office Minister, focusing on women, equality and domestic violence.”
