Labour leadership: More than 180,000 people register in 48 hours

Labour has received more than 180,000 applications to vote in the party’s upcoming leadership election over the past 48 hours, it has said.

Some 183,541 people paid £25 to become registered supporters and qualify for a vote in the contest between existing leader Jeremy Corbyn and Owen Smith.

Mr Smith was nominated by 162 Labour MPs. The party ruled last week that Mr Corbyn did not need to get nominations.

The winner of the contest is due to be announced on 24 September.

The new registered supporters will vote alongside more than 380,000 party members who joined before 12 January and members of affiliated unions.
