Among those signing the petition include Kevin McKeever, who recently stood in the Police and Crime Commissioner elections, the leader of Corby Borough Council Councillor Tom Beattie and other county politicians.

The letter states: “As members of the Labour Party in the East Midlands we talk to voters on the doorstep week in, week out in all weathers and know that the our communities across the region are in desperate need of a Labour Government.

“Labour cannot get into government without winning seats in the East Midlands and in recent times, we have become increasingly concerned that the current leadership of the Labour Party does not have what it takes to be electable in our region and across the country.

“It is therefore with heavy hearts that we call on you to resign as Leader of the Labour Party with immediate effect. The people of the East Midlands deserve a Labour Party that is ready for government and we do not feel that is the case under your leadership.
