Hustings called off after Starmer family accident

Hustings called off after Starmer family accident

Labour leadership election hustings scheduled for Sunday have been postponed.

The move comes after shadow Cabinet member Sir Keir Starmer cancelled campaigning this weekend because his mother-in-law remains in a critical condition in hospital following an accident.

A Labour Party spokesman said: "All our thoughts are with Keir and his family."

A hustings event in Nottingham went ahead on Saturday with a representative standing in for Sir Keir.
